Pennsylvania car accident kills 2

With the recent severe winter weather, many roads in Pennsylvania have been dangerous to travel on. However, people still need to be out and about, and therefore the roadways are still busy. In these conditions, drivers need to take extra precautions to avoid serious car accidents. Negligent drivers can do a lot of damage, especially when the roads are slick.

Police say that the roads were both icy and wet during a recent fatal car accident in Pennsylvania. While police have not released the exact details of why or how the accident occurred, it has been reported that at least two people died in the crash. According to reports, the accident occurred around 4:00 p.m. and closed a stretch of Interstate 81 for a time.

In the three car accident, a driver of one car and a backseat passenger in one of the cars was killed. The front-seat passenger in one car was also injured and was taken to a local hospital to be treated. It was not clear which cars involved the fatalities, but reports claim that at least one car was in the embankment following the accident.

Car accident often involve serious injuries. People who are involved in car accidents can suffer immediate harm -- such as broken bones, internal injuries or spinal cord injuries. Other injuries including whiplash or brain injuries may surface after the accident. In any case, these injuries can make life difficult of people. People may take weeks, months or years to return to normal life following a car accident.

When injuries occur, people should make sure that negligence was not involved in causing the accident. If a driver was negligent, then that driver should be held financially responsible -- through a personal injury suit.

Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle.
