WEST POTTSGROVE TWP., Pa. - Authorities are seeking the public's help in locating a vehicle involved a crash that killed two people and seriously injured a third on Route 422 in Montgomery County over the weekend.
The accident happened shortly after midnight Saturday in West Pottsgrove Township, just east of the border between Berks and Montgomery counties.
One of the two cars involved crashed through a guardrail and down an embankment. Two passengers, whose names have not been released, died at the scene; the driver, identified as Shone Santiago, was flown to the trauma center at Reading Hospital and was last reported to be in critical condition, officials said.
The Montgomery County district attorney's office Sunday night released information about the second vehicle being sought in the crash. Authorities described it as a newer model black Dodge Challenger with a Delaware license plate, dark tinted windows, bright headlights, and yellow fog lights.
The investigation revealed that both cars were racing each other at the time of the crash, traveling in excess of 100 mph, detectives said.
"It's just a constant battle for people who do have to commute on it," said Harry Enright, a local resident. "It's a shame. You need to slow down."
Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or have information about the car being sought can call either Montgomery County detectives at 610-278-3368 or West Pottsgrove police at 610-323-2090.
