DelCo man dies in Newtown Square overnight following SEPTA crash

NEWTOWN SQURE, Pa. (YC) – We broke the story just after 2 a.m. Thursday after a man struck a SEPTA bus at a high rate of speed in Newtown Square, Delaware County.

The man, identified as Donald Lee Rieck, was initially rushed to the hospital in critical condition but was pronounced dead shortly after.

Newtown Detective Bill Moor said the driver of the striking vehicle was traveling westbound on the 3300 block of West Chester Pike at 12:58 a.m. when he struck the rear of a Route 104 bus.

Fire crews from Newtown Volunteer Fire Co. alongside first responders worked diligently to extricate Rieck, who was heavily entrapped in his vehicle.
