At 7:27 p.m. on Monday there was a two-car crash on Route 117 at the intersection with Thomas Road. The car versus motorcycle crash was a head-on, and both vehicles caught fire, becoming fully involved before the fire department arrived.

The driver and passenger in the car got out on their own, and both were taken to the hospital. LifeStar was initially called for the motorcyclist, but was then cancelled.
