Police, firefighters, EMT’s and physicians worked for nearly three hours, Saturday morning, to extract a person trapped in a SUV that flipped into a telephone pole on County Line Road near Willow Drive in Warminster.

The rescued driver of the Ford Explorer that overturned was reported to be in stable condition Saturday afternoon, according to police.

Police say that the wreck involved two vehicles, one a pick-up truck and the other the Explorer, which was resting against the telephone pole on County Line Road near Willow Drive.

A neighbor said the accident occurred around 7 a.m. and did not sound serious but appeared more serious when the neighbor saw the car overturned and resting against the pole.

Fire and EMS crews  from Warminster and Horsham worked to free the victim from the SUV which had it’s roof resting against the pole. Physicians from from Philadelphia’s Albert Einstein Medical Center arrived on-scene to assist rescue workers with the extrication.

Firefighters were scene pulling child safety seats out of the SUV after the crash, but police confirm the driver was the only occupant and no children were inside the vehicle at the time of the morning wreck.

Police say County Line Road was closed between Easton Road and Delmont Avenue for nearly 4 hours as the wreck was cleared.

At this time a accident investigation is on-going and police are urging anyone who witnessed the crash to call Officer Daniele Leporace, of the Highway Safety Unit, at 215-215-443-5000.
