Pennsylvania sees rash of car accidents

The roadways can be a treacherous place especially in the winter. Drivers need to be extra vigilant to avoid car accidents. Despite cautious driving, negligent behavior by someone else can still cause an auto accident.

Recently, Pennsylvania has seen rash of car accidents that have been responsible for injuring and killing local residents. In the most recent accident, two cars collided near Liberty Township. According to police reports, one of the cars was driving south while the other was traveling north on Marsh Creek Road. Apparently, the two cars crashed head on. As a result of the accident, one man was killed and three others were injured and were sent to local hospitals.

This accident happened just days after three other serious accidents occurred in the area. Each of these accidents caused serious injuries or death to those involved. Many of those injured in the accidents were still listed in critical condition days after the accidents occurred.

While police continue to investigate the cause of all these accidents, the victims must focus on their own recovery. Car accidents can cause serious injuries including broken bones, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries and brain damage. Each of these conditions can take months or years of intense physical therapy and medical care to get people back to the same physical shape they were in before the accident occurred. During this recovery period, accident victims and their families may suffer from financial hardship.

However, in some cases, compensation may be available to car accident victims. When a negligent driver causes a car accident, that person is responsible for the financial damage caused. This includes the physical damage to the car, but also medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses victims suffer. Those injured in these most recent crashes should investigate their legal options.

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.
