Robesonia Crash Victim Identified

South Heidelberg Township, Berks County Police have identified the victim from Thursday morning’s fatal crash near the Dunkin Donuts store along East Penn Avenue – Route 422 – in Robesonia Borough.

68-year old Robert Hatt tripped as he tried to cross the street with his dog. As he attempted to stand up, Hatt was struck by a large, straight-body refrigerator box truck, then a small, silver car followed by what’s believed to be a tanker truck. Police say none of the drivers stopped after striking Hatt and his dog.

Investigators have obtained surveillance video capturing the entire gruesome incident and they’ve interviewed several eyewitnesses. However, they ask anyone else who may have witnessed the crash to come forward and report what they saw.
