Two women die in an early morning car accident

A fatal car crash occurred that claimed the lives of two Pennsylvania women recently. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the car accident but said the weather was not a factor. In Pennsylvania and other states, if negligence is believed to have been a contributing factor, surviving family members may have legal recourse.

Pennsylvania car accident leads to arrest

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances in Pennsylvania has consequences that reach far beyond the initial incident. The aftermath of injuries and fatalities caused by a car accident are often devastating. Driving while intoxicated or under the influence can leave lasting scars on families of the victims and on the negligent driver as well.

Citizens concerned as auto accident on busy road kills another

Many factors can contribute to accidents in Pennsylvania. A negligent driver, driving while under the influence of illegal substances or alcohol, speeding and the distraction of cell phones can all play a part in car accidents that can shake up victims or claim the lives of others. Speeding can leave drivers with the inability to maneuver a vehicle in a deliberate and necessary manner to avoid an auto accident. Concerned residents are pushing for change after a recent accident claimed a life.

Car accident risk rises with distractions

Since the advent of the cell phone, safety advocates in Pennsylvania have urged drivers to put down their devices. While it seems as if many drivers are hearing and understanding the message, not all are putting it into practice. Despite the fact that distracted driving raises the probability of being involved in a car accident, drivers continue to use their devices behind the wheel.

Flying ice and snow can lead to a car accident

At the end of winter, nature seems to throw some crazy weather patterns into Pennsylvania. Snow, heat waves and ice storms are some of the strange and unpredictable weather the state receives this time of year. A recent snow storm has led local police to amp up their warnings about driving with vehicles that are snow or ice covered. Preventing a car accident by simply cleaning off one's vehicle is not only considerate, it is also the law.

Drivers urged to slow down to avoid a possible car accident

First responders and police are urging drivers to proceed with caution when traveling on Pennsylvania roadways. Several recent head-on collisions in one county have left four dead and multiple others injured. Authorities cautioned that many accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted, speeding or acting aggressively. Regardless, using caution while operating a motor vehicle can help to cut down on the likelihood of being involved in a car accident.   

Pennsylvania teen seriously injured in auto accident

Obtaining one's license is often a rite of passage into adulthood for many young American teens. Many new drivers will often underestimate their skills and the attention that must be devoted to operating a vehicle, especially when the roadways are busy and teeming with traffic. This lack of experience and the belief that one is invincible can lead to an auto accident, sometimes with deadly consequences. One Pennsylvania teen learned this lesson the hard way.

Pennsylvania man formally charged in fatal car accident

Operating a motor vehicle is often seen by many as something that they just do. Sometimes, little regard is given to the enormous responsibility. The reality of sitting behind the wheel and driving an automobile is a significant endeavour which requires diligence, attention to detail, good judgement and quick reflexes. When a Pennsylvania driver gets behind the wheel with disregard for others on the road or traffic laws, a car accident can occur with devastating effects for those involved.

Snow and ice covered Pennyslvania roads leads to car accident

When Pennsylvania weather turns from flowers and sunshine to cold and snow, the roads can become a battle ground for traction. Drivers should exercise caution when traveling in such weather to help avoid car accidents and injuries, if they must travel at all. Black ice spots and snow-covered roads can give unsuspecting drivers a sense of security and overconfidence when navigating these dangerous conditions, which can lead some to find themselves victims in a car accident.

Car accident on Pennsylvania Turnpike leads to numerous wrecks

The Pennsylvania Turnpike can be a deadly drive for some motorists. Speed, numerous cars and tractor-trailers along with the weather that can turn in an instant, the turnpike has seen its fair share of car accidents. A recent multi-car accident has injured several and claimed the lives of two people.
