PHOENIXVILLE - Two people were airlifted to Philadelphia hospitals following a head-on collision at the intersection of Walnut and Bridge Streets Wednesday evening.
According to Officer Jose Sousa, a four-door black Honda Accord LX, driven by Pamela Winston, of Phoenixville, was traveling east on Bridge Street around 6:37 p.m. June 16.
At the same time, a two-door black Mitsubishi Eclipse, driven by Charlene Rapp, of Phoenixville, was heading west on Bridge Street.
"It appears that the collision occurred when the Eclipse attempted to make a left onto Walnut Street," said Sousa. "The vehicle collided head-first, facing Walnut Street."
Witnesses in the area said after they heard a loud crash, they came outside to find everyone inside their vehicles.
"Once we got out here, the one car had a woman and a child, while the other vehicle had a guy and a girl inside," said the witness. "Everyone's airbags deployed, so it could've been a lot worse."
West End Ambulance transported a 10-year-old male passenger from the Accord to be flown to Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania via PennStar 2, along with a 19-year-old male passenger from the Eclipse, who was airlifted by PennStar 1 to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, both for injuries unknown at this time.
Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage and were towed from the scene by Pejey's Towing, Phoenixville.
Assisting at the scene were West End Ambulance, Phoenixville Police Department and Phoenixville Fire Department.
