A Lower Saucon Township man died at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Fountain Hill Monday from injuries he suffered in a car crash in Upper Saucon Township 10 days ago, authorities announced.
Lehigh Valley Live reported that Michael Carroll, 38, died of complications from multiple traumatic injuries attributed to the single-vehicle crash, which happened around 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 in the 5300 block of Old Bethlehem Pike.
That section of road is between Landis Mill and Spring Valley roads, just east of Rt. 378.
The news site reported that Carroll’s car veered off the road and struck a tree, and that the Lehigh County Coroner’s office–which is investigating it along with the Upper Saucon Township Police Department–classified Carroll’s death as an accident.
According to Carroll’s public Facebook profile, he was president of SmartAcre, a Bethlehem marketing agency.
The profile also states that he was a graduate of Palisades High School and attended Bloomsburg University.
