Man left for dead following car accident

These blogs are posted on behalf of Seidel, Cohen, Hof & Reid, LLC, and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the firm or its attorneys. The information presented in this blog is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be legal advice.

Pennsylvania drivers know that when an accident occurs, any vehicles that are not completely disabled should be moved to the side of the roadway, and any people involved should wait for help to arrive. After a car accident, the side of the road is a dangerous place to be. Other drivers may not yet be aware that there is an accident ahead. People and vehicles are at risk of being struck by passing traffic. 

Recently on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, a car carrying three people was involved in an accident. They were able to move the vehicle to the shoulder, where one of the men got out of the car to inspect the damage to the vehicle. He was struck by a semitrailer as it passed by. 

When emergency responders arrived at the scene, police discovered that the two people that had been with the man had fled in the car from the scene. The man was left to die on the side of the road. Police are currently investigating the incident, and searching for the other two people in the car. It is currently unknown what caused the original car accident. 

When a victim dies from injuries suffered from a car accident, their loved ones may be overwhelmed. Medical bills, funeral expenses and legal cases may need to be dealt with immediately. In such cases, it can be helpful to enlist the help of an experienced attorney. An attorney may be able to help victims, or their families of deceased victims, as they begin their recovery journey.
