A woman from Sellersville was ejected about 20 feet from the vehicle she was in following an accident Monday night at Allentown and Forty Foot roads in .
Marissa Moore, 21, of Sellersville, was flown via PennStar MedEvac to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania following the accident.
Moore's conditon is unknown, as hospital representatives said her parents could only release her condition.
Lt. Jeff Kratz of Towamencin Police said it appeared Moore did not wear a seatbet, based on the ejection. Moore was the sole occupant, Kratz said.
Kratz said Moore was traveling eastbound on Allentown Road toward Forty Foot Road, when she failed to negotiate the bend in the roadway near Tennis-Lukens Cemetery and North Penn Water Authority.
"She came around the bend, and went into a sideways slide," Kratz said. "The rear of the car came around and led the path of travel off the roadway."
Moore's 1999 Chevy Cavalier crossed over into the westbound lane and westbound shoulder. In the shoulder, there is road construction and the roadway bed is dug out.
"The vehicle left the roadway and went into the depression area under construction. Making contact with the excavation, the car overturned several times and (Moore) was ejected," Kratz said.
Montgomeryville-Lansdale Patch was the first to report this incident.
