2 injured in Bern Twp. crash

BERN TWP., Pa. -

Two people were hurt early Friday when their car ran off a Berks County road.

Officials say a serious accident was reported around 3 a.m. at Grange Road near Whiteoak Road in Bern Twp.

This is just outside Leesport.


Officials say two people were trapped inside the vehicle--crews were able to get a woman passenger out quickly, but it took them around 90 minutes to get the male driver out of the wreckage.


Both were taken to Reading Hospital --one by ambulance, the other by helicopter. Their conditions are not known.

Police said it appeared they missed a turn in the road, and the car ended up on its side between two trees.

Grange Road was closed a few hours while crews investigated.
