Investigation underway for crash that injured Pennsylvania man

When a car accident occurs, it is not always immediately clear why the crash happened. In many situations, following a car crash, drivers are disorientated, injured and confused. They may not understand exactly how the car accident occurred.

Authorities are trying to piece together a recent Pennsylvania accident. In this accident, it appears that three cars -- a Mazda SUV, a Ford and a pickup truck -- crashed into one another at an intersection. Following the accident, it appeared as if the pickup truck had hit the Mazda which had rear ended the Ford. In the crash, the driver of the Ford was seriously injured. He had to be removed from his cars by first-responders and transported to a local hospital where he was listed in serious condition. Thankfully, no one else was hurt in the collision.

Following an accident, it is important for those involved in the accident to ensure that a complete investigation of the crash scene has taken place. This investigation may be conducted, in part, by the police, but accident victims can also get help in conducting an investigation. The accident investigation should look for answers about why the crash happened.

Part of the investigation should include an examination at the scene which could include pictures and other physical evidence. In some situations, it may be necessary to have an expert interpret some of the evidence found at the scene -- like the skid marks.

By ensuring that an investigation is completed, car accident victims can try and find out if another person's negligent behavior caused the accident. If the crash was caused by a negligent driver, then the victims may be entitled to compensation for damages suffered in the collision.

Motion for Judgment of Acquittal for a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) prosecution was granted by Lycoming County President Judge Nancy L. Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
