Pennsylvania SUV accidents can have severe consequences

A smaller sized SUV crossed over the center line of a Pennsylvania roadway, causing a head-on collision in Allentown on a recent Tuesday evening, officials report. The motor vehicle accident occurred at 7:47 p.m., just south of the local college. The first vehicle was traveling eastbound when it veered into oncoming traffic and collided with a larger-sized motor vehicle. SUV accidents such as this one have the potential for severe consequences.    

The driver of the larger SUV, a male, was ejected from his vehicle and rushed to the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The driver of the other vehicle, also a male, was reported to have suffered minor injuries. Both vehicles received significant front-end damage.  

It is unclear at this point whether there were any passengers involved. Two other cars were also seen sitting further west in the eastbound lanes of the street after the crash. A witness reported that as many as five vehicles may have been involved in the collision. The extent of the damage to the other vehicles is not yet clear.  

Speed may have been a primary factor regarding the accident, as the smaller SUV had just come out of an eastbound curve before crossing the center line. The speed limit on that particular section of the highway is 40 mph. Investigations are still ongoing at this point. In SUV accidents like this one, carelessness (such as going too fast) on the part of one driver could create a legal obligation to any parties injured as a result. Pennsylvania victims could benefit greatly from seeking the advice of knowledgeable personal injury counsel.
