Driving At High Speeds Causes Motor Vehicle Accident

On Saturday, December 28, 2019 at approximately 1:36 a.m. a Swatara Police officer was completing a traffic stop on Rt. 322 westbound when a black Acura sedan passed the officer at a high rate of speed.  As this vehicle was driving in a dangerous manner the officer attempted to locate the vehicle that was last seen traveling southbound on Interstate 83 at the 17th Street off-ramp.  After unsuccessfully searching the area roadways an officer discovered that the vehicle had failed to negotiate the turn from the off- ramp onto 17th Street, left the roadway and was found lying beside the railway over an embankment west of the intersection.  Officers found that the vehicle had four occupants, all of which were transported to local hospitals for evaluation and treatment.  The Pennsylvania State Police are investigating this motor vehicle accident.
