Man charged re fatal car accident

A passenger in a motor vehicle depends on the driver to be vigilant and provide safe transportation. When a driver chooses to break the law, he or she risks the lives of any passengers, as well as others in or near the roadway. Sometimes, a driver's negligent or criminal behavior causes a car accident that results in serious injury or death. 

Charges pressed in fatal auto accident

Sometimes, a car crash is the result of unavoidable hazards, such as weather conditions or a vehicle malfunction. Usually, this type of auto accident is handled by insurance companies and will likely never end up as a legal matter in court. In other cases, an auto accident is the result of negligence or carelessness on the part of a driver. Pennsylvania has seen its share of both types this summer, and in the case of the latter sort, charges have been pressed.

Pedestrian auto accident victim dies

Every driver's worst nightmare is being involved in an accident. In Pennsylvania, auto accidents claim thousands of lives each year. Serious crashes can result in permanent personal injury, or worse, and expensive damage to vehicles. When a driver is involved in an auto accident, state law requires that he or she pull safely to the side of the road and remain on the scene until police arrive. 

Car accident claims 2 lives

As summer draws to a close, Pennsylvania roads are busier than ever. Families may be trying to squeeze in a last-minute vacation, or be out and about trying to clear their back-to-school shopping lists. With a summer that produced a near-record number of fatal car accident incidents state-wide, drivers are growing ever more wary of their surroundings, but a recent tragedy shows that a serious car accident is still just a turn away. 

Car accident results in manslaughter charges

The Keystone State is home to some of the most scenic roads in the nation. A drive through Pennsylvania boasts both rural and urban landscapes that could be the photo on a postcard. Though usually a pleasurable experience, Pennsylvania roads can also be dangerous, and there is always the risk of a serious car accident.

Suspected drug activity leads to serious car accident

Pennsylvania drivers are surely aware that whenever the rubber meets the road, there is the potential for a crash. Though most drivers do their best to obey traffic laws and practice defensive driving, on some occasions a serious car accident can be the result of another unrelated crime. In these cases, an innocent victim can suffer injuries. 

Man left for dead following car accident

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. 

Driver ignores stop sign, causes fatal car accident.

After a winter that seemed as if it would never end, Pennsylvania residents are out and about, enjoying the warm rays of the summer sun. With so much to do and see across the Keystone State, it is no wonder that drivers may have noticed an increased amount of traffic. It is always important for drivers to obey traffic laws and signals because a fatal car accident can result from one careless mistake. 

Undiagnosed injury after car accident can reduce quality of life

Victims of Pennsylvania crashes can suffer physical and mental trauma, even in minor collisions. Sometimes, even a low-speed car accident can cause severe injuries, depending on factors such as where the passengers were seated and whether they wore their seat belts. While cuts and scrapes that are caused by shattered glass or other flying objects in the car are typically not severe, some other major injuries can be missed if not diagnosed immediately after the crash -- often causing long-term health problems.
