A man was left fighting for his life and an off-duty police officer was left recovering after a crash involving two cars in the Holmesburg section of Northeast Philadelphia overnight Saturday into Sunday.

Police say a car and a van collided around midnight on State Road and Ashburner Street. The driver of the van, a 42-year-old man, was ejected during the crash. He was taken to the hospital where he remained in critical condition Sunday.

The driver of the car, an off-duty police officer, suffered a broken wrist. He was treated and released from the hospital. 

Both vehicles were badly smashed up with front-end damage to one car.

Police have not yet determined the cause of the accident though they don’t suspect alcohol or anything suspicious was involved.
