Two People Flee Car Accident Overnight. One Jumps into Schuylkill River

6ABC Action News reported this morning that there was an accident overnight that involved a car striking two other cars and coming to a stop after hitting the walkway barrier on the Matsonford Bridge.

The driver and another person fled the scene and one jumped into the Schuylkill River. A Pennsylvania State Trooper was injured after falling down steps. We are not aware of any other injuries.

Please note, we do not think the person jumped off the bridge. We think the two fled down the steps leading to ground level and one of the two jumped into the river from there.
