According to police a middle-aged man and woman are dead after a serious wreck involving a car and motorcycle at Street Road and Knowles Avenue.
Upper Southampton Police Lt. Frank Groome said the female victim police was pronounced dead at the scene and the male victim was declared dead shortly after being taken from the crash site by paramedics. Both victims are Bucks County residents.
A driver and a passenger in a Chevy Impala, which suffered heavy front-end damage, were for the most part uninjured but were taken to St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown, Groom told Patch.
Both the male and female victims were thrown from the bike and onto the pavement of Street Road.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation by officers and detectives. Police did say the motorcycle was headed eastbound on Street Road towards Feasterville when the crash occurred at around 7 p.m.
Motorist Kathy Garrett said she arrived on the scene right after the accident and alerted EMTs at the nearby ambulance station, as other passerbys worked to try to save the male motorcylist life.
Police investigated the crash for more than two hours before the Bucks County Coroner arrived at the scene to retrieve the female victim’s body.
The motorcycle that carried the two victims sat, broken into two pieces, on the sidewalk outside the BP gas station as multiple investigators took measurements at the scene. Strewn about Street Road were some of the victims’ personal belongings.
A sport bike was parked at the scene shortly after the crash. That motorcyclist left shortly after spearking with police, and his relationship, if any, with the victims in unknown.
Eastbound Street Road was closed until shortly after 10:30 p.m. as authorities worked the scene.
Northampton Township police and the Southampton Fire Co. assisted Upper Southampton police at the scene.
