A third vehicle was also struck but was quickly removed by Lynch Collision Center flatbed tow truck.

Residents of the street said the man operating the white Ford Focus was transported to Lower Bucks Hospital for medical treatment. No information was released by Police about the nature of the injuries he sustained in the accident. Witnesses did say, the driver complained about rib and chest related pain when removed from his vehicle/

No criminal charges were filed as of Sunday morning, with Police still investigating the crash.

For one unlucky vehicle owner, its the third time vehicles he’s owned have been struck by motorists in front of his Bath St home.

It’s ridiculous, he said.
