Man Thrown From SUV in Bucks County Crash on Route 1

A Bucks County man was thrown from the SUV he was driving when it crashed into the woods off U.S. Route 1 in Bucks County Friday afternoon. 

The crash closed Route 1 southbound just past Woolston Drive in Falls Township around 12:30 p.m.

Police could be seen forcing drivers down the on-ramp as they investigated the SUV that wound up facing the wrong direction in a wooded area up ahead.

A 27-year-old man from the Levittown area was thrown from the SUV and police said he was taken to St. Mary's trauma center in grave condition. The victim was set to donate his organs, officials said Friday afternoon.

As this crash snarled traffic on Route 1, an unrelated utility pole fire shut down Interstate 95 in Bucks County.
