'Homemade' Moped Driver Injured in Crash

A victim was badly hurt after a wreck on Street Road near the Lower Southampton and Upper Southampton border.

A male victim was taken Abington Memorial Hospital's trauma unit late Monday night after an accident at Street and Buck roads.

Lower Southampton police say the victim was riding on a two-wheeled moped-like vehicle when he was involved in an accident at the intersection.

The small vehicle and an SUV made contact at the intersection and rider was injured, police said. No one in the SUV was seriously hurt.

A pair of shoes and bloodied clothing sat in the eastbound lanes of Street Road, just feet away the badly damaged moped.

Crews from the Feasterville Fire Company and Upper Southampton Police Department assisted at the scene.

The accident and ensuing investigation closed the road from around 10:45 p.m. to midnight.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, police said.

I think kid had no license to be driving on the street. He is lucky he is alive and the people in the SUV were not hurt b/c he chose to break the law

I had dealings with the driver of the moped... he does not have a license. I heard he had to have several surgeries- broke his leg and arm. Have no Idea how the car occupants made out.
