Pedestrian Killed in Lewis Road Crash

Teen driver crossed onto other side of roadway and fatally struck woman in Limerick, police said.

A female pedestrian was killed Monday afternoon when she was struck by a vehicle on N. Lewis Road in Limerick.

According to Police Chief William Albany, a green Ford Focus traveling northbound on N. Lewis Road had crossed into the southbound lane "for unknown reasons" and struck a woman wearing jogging clothes before striking a utility pole and sustaining heavy front-end damage.

The 18-year-old male driver of the Focus sustained what Albany called minor injuries and was transported to Phoenixville Hospital for treatment.

The male driver refused to give a statement or consent to a search of his cell phone, police said later Monday.
