It seems roadways across the state of Pennsylvania are becoming more and more dangerous with each passing year. These days, just going for a short drive can potentially result in a serious or fatal crash. Motor vehicle accidents are completely unpredictable and can happen in a split second. It goes without saying that a traumatic accident is something that no person wants to experience.
Recently, a motor vehicle accident in Washington Township claimed the life of one person and injured seven others. The crash happened during the afternoon hours on Route 380. According to reports, the driver of a minivan was headed west when, for unknown reasons, began traveling in the eastbound lanes. Report said the minivan violently collided head-on with an eastbound sedan.
Reportedly, the driver of the sedan became entrapped in the vehicle and suffered multiple, blunt force injuries. Tragically, he was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, authorities said. Reports said there were seven total occupants in the minivan and they were all taken to a local hospital with injuries. Police are continuing to investigate the accident.
It is very important that drivers always remain alert and aware of surroundings to prevent these types of accidents. Those in Pennsylvania who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones due to negligence in motor vehicle accidents reserve the right to contact an attorney and discuss their options. A lawsuit, if successful, could result in a substantial monetary award to help victims and families recover from a traumatic crash.
