A vehicle crashed into the Piazza Honda Dealership on North Lewis Road in Limerick Thursday afternoon, striking parked cars and seriously injuring the driver.

According to a report from Caroline Sweeney of the Pottstown Mercury, a Red Mercury Mountaineer “abruptly” made a left turn off of North Lewis road and launched off a snow bank in the car dealership’s parking lot, taking the roof off of one car and striking others.

The vehicle landed on its passenger side, and Limerick and Linfield firefighters extricated the driver.

Limerick Township Police Chief William Albany said the driver’s injuries were “grievous,” and his name was not being released at the time.

The driver was taken to Pottstown Memorial Hospital, according to ABC Local.

Patch will continue to follow this story.

I saw the aftermath while on my way to a daycare down the road... the Mountaineer was being pulled off of the what seemed to look like a new black Accord. The wreckage was really bad, best wishes for recovery for the driver.

There are many cases of the throttles sticking in these Mountaineers during cold weather and highway driving. Our prayers go out to his family and friends.

Steve was a good friend and a great teacher at to vocation school. He was always there to help out a friend with car issues. I am shocked by his passing and will miss him. Ed Dressler
