Driver Dies as Car Slams Into Fence Posts Along Main Line Road

A deadly crash along a Main Line road left a car mangled and fence posts scattered.

The driver -- alone in the vehicle -- lost control of a sedan along Bryn Mawr Avenue in front of the Radwyn Apartments in Bryn Mawr around 3:20 a.m. Thursday, said Radnor Township Police.

Officers arrive to find the driver dead inside the car, said police.

The one-car wreck -- where the car wound up on the other side of a fence -- left Bryn Mawr Avenue closed between Castlefinn Lane and S County Line Road for about six hours. Roberts Road could be used as an alternate, said NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Jessica Boyington.

No word yet on what caused the crash that impacted students tying to get to nearby Jack M Barrack Hebrew Academy Thursday morning.

"We are aware of a major accident on Bryn Mawr Avenue which occurred earlier today," read a message on the school's website. "The street is closed from Wawa to the Presbyterian Church. It did not involve anyone from Barrack.

"There will be police diverting cars and buses to an alternate route into school. Let them know you are trying to get to Barrack and they will let you through.

"Please take your time and, as always, be safe."
