EXETER TWP., PA - Berks County Communications dispatched units to Perkiomen Avenue and Sunset Manor Drive in Exeter Township shortly after 7:30 P.M. on April 13th for a two-vehicle crash. Initial reports were of a two-vehicle head-on crash, with two subjects pinned.

Upon arrival, one driver was out of their vehicle. Crews went to work on the second vehicle, which had substantial damage. A tow truck was used to make room by pulling the other vehicle away from the vehicle with the trapped driver.

Extrication took just under 20 minutes and the driver was transported to the hospital by Life Lion EMS. The roadway was reopened about an hour later.
