Car accident casts shadow on farm show

It's that time of year again, and the Pennsylvania Farm Show is underway in Harrisburg. For many families across the state, the farm show has become an annual tradition. With so much to see and do, it boasts attractions for people of any age, and families look forward to making the trip each year. Unfortunately for one family, a serious car accident ruined the day they had been looking forward to. 

The ordeal began when police performed a traffic stop on a vehicle with an expired registration. At first, the driver of the vehicle in question complied, pulling over and producing identification to officers. The officers then asked the man to turn his vehicle off. Instead, the driver sped off so quickly that he didn't even shut the door of the vehicle. 

Pennsylvania police radioed for permission to pursue the vehicle, which was apparently granted by supervisors. Before they could catch up with the fleeing suspect, a call came in about a bad car accident nearby. Police arrived on the scene to find that the suspect had crashed into a vehicle carrying a family of six, including children, to the farm show. The impact was so severe the victim's vehicle was overturned, and the accident victims were rushed to the hospital. 

When innocent people are injured in a car accident, especially if the driver at fault was involved in the commission of a crime, the aftermath can be frustrating. In this case, a family trying to have a nice day and spend time together is now faced with medical bills, serious physical injury and children who are certainly traumatized. An experienced attorney can be of great assistance to victims that want to seek justice against those believed responsible for a motor vehicle accident.
