We just picked up our son's friend in Lil Wolf for a "play date" and were on our way to our home when a young driver did not successfully execute a turn onto Shankweiler Road. The speeding driver knocked the spouting off the home and pushed that home's mail box out of the ground before veering across both lanes and off the road. The gray Dodge Stratus spun the tires a few times before getting back onto the road in front of our car.
I grabbed paper and pen from the glove compartment of my car as my husband followed the Dodge to the traffic light. The Dodge stopped at the light as I wrote the rest of the license plate number to go with the description of the car. The Dodge turned left onto Route 309 (south) in the direction of South Whitehall Township.
We didn't make the left turn to go home. Instead, we went straight and turned around at the drive-in, then went back to see if anyone was home at the house that was hit. Then we checked the neighbor and I jotted down that house number as 4455. No one answered the door, so my husband tried the next house where there was a car. No one answered that door, so we drove home to report the accident. No, we don't have cell phones.
I called Whitehall Police since I didn't know where to report accidents for North Whitehall and they transferred me to state police dispatch who said they would investigate. If anyone has any information about this accident, please contact the local police dispatch. If you see the damaged Dodge or spot that license number, please report this. The address is of the damaged property is 4447 Shankweiler Road, Orefield.
