Man charged in multiple crashes

David Ramos kept ambulance drivers and tow truck operators plenty busy in Kensington on Sunday.
Police said Ramos, 30, injured a dozen people — including a pregnant woman — and smashed into eight vehicles when he lost control of his car while driving at 80 mph. near C and Tioga streets at about 2:30 p.m.
By the time he finished bouncing around like a human pinball, Ramos’ red Mitsubishi Eclipse was on its roof and four other cars were totaled, police said.
Ramos, of Thayer Street near G, was charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and driving without a license, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman.
Russell said that Ramos was not intoxicated during his multiple crashes.
The pregnant woman was among 10 other drivers and passengers who were treated at area hospitals and released.
Two other women injured during the multiple crashes, however, did not fare as well.
One victim, whose name was not released, was listed in critical condition yesterday at Hahnemann University Hospital with a broken right femur and broken right ankle, Russell said.
The other victim, who also was not identified, was in critical condition at Temple University with a broken wrist, broken ankle and lacerated spleen.
