Fatal car accident kills three in Pennsylvania

Car accidents are often deadly. People sometimes think of car accidents as being nothing more than an inconvenience and an expense. But, for many Pennsylvania families car accidents result is a lifetime of pain.

Recently, a serious car accident has killed three people in Pennsylvania and injured four others. According to reports, a group of high school football players were driving home from a game together when their car was involved in a head-on collision with another car at around 10:00 p.m. Two of the football players were killed and the two others were injured. They were taken to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.

As a result of the accident, the driver of the other vehicle was also killed in the accident. Furthermore, two children riding in that car were also injured and taken to local hospitals.

Police took several hours to clear the accident scene and investigate the scene.

When a fatal car accident occurs, the victim's families are often left to pick up the pieces following the crash. A police investigation can help answer some of the questions that family members may have about why an accident occurred. However, a more complete investigation is sometimes necessary.

The most important question that a family needs answered following a fatal car crash is whether one of the drivers was negligent. This is because negligent drivers can be held financially responsible for the accident. Therefore, either that person -- of that person's estate -- can be forced to compensate a family for expenses arising from the accident including medical costs, funeral expenses and pain and suffering.
