Abington PD Investigates Fatal Car Crash

April 3, 2015
Case 15-012271

At approximately 11:25 PM on April 2, 2015 there was a one-vehicle crash at Jenkintown Road and Fisher Road in the Jenkintown Section of Abington Township. The investigation indicates that a black, 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed when the operator apparently lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle ran off the road at Jenkintown Road and Evergreen Road and struck a fire hydrant. The vehicle then crossed back over Jenkintown road, bounced off of a stone wall before crossing back over Jenkintown Road again and striking a utility
pole head-on where the vehicle came to rest. The driver and lone occupant was a 45 year old man who resides in the McKinley Section of Abington Township. He was pronounced dead at the scene and his identity is being withheld until his relatives have all been notified.

There were no witnesses to the crash and no indication that any other vehicles were involved.

Deputy Chief John A. Livingood
