Drivers in Pennsylvania never know what they may face when they get behind the wheel and take to the road. Two people lost their lives in a recent head-on collision that unexpectedly happened in Walker Township. Authorities noted that this was the third fatal accident in a span of eight days for this particular area.
Fatal accident details
The accident happened during the afternoon hours near the 2000 block of Nittany Valley Drive. According to reports, the driver of a sedan was headed south and, for unknown reasons, drifted into oncoming traffic. Reports said the sedan crashed head-on into an oncoming vehicle.
Tragically, the driver of the sedan along with a passenger in the other vehicle were killed in the crash. Reportedly, the driver of the other vehicle was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The roadway was closed for several hours while authorities investigated the crash. Police said four people were killed and three others injured in three separate crashes along this same roadway within a timeframe of eight days.
An attorney can help victims and families
The surviving family members of those who are killed in accidents such as this have the option of seeking legal recourse against those who are deemed responsible. These types of claims can be complicated to say the least, so this is where seeking the services of an experienced legal representative can be beneficial. A successfully litigated lawsuit could end with victims and families receiving a monetary award to cover medical expenses and other losses related to the tragic accident.
