Fatal car accident in Muncy kills 1

When two or more vehicles are traveling on Pennsylvania roadways, there is always the possibility of a collision. A car accident can cause serious injuries and fatalities, especially when one or more driver is negligent. Drivers that fail to obey traffic laws, text and driver or drive drunk are frequently responsible for these accidents.

Pennsylvania state police recently responded to a serious accident in Muncy, Pennsylvania. In this situation, a 62-year-old woman was driving down PA Route 405 when she hit another car at around 3:15 p.m. The 24-year-old driver of the other was reportedly pulling out into the intersection of Neidig's Drive and Route 405 at the time.

As a result of the collision, the 24-year-old -- from South Williamsport -- was killed in the accident. She died at the scene. The 62-year-old woman was also injured in the accident and was taken to a local hospital. She was treated for minor injuries.

This fatal accident claimed the life of a young woman. An investigation is likely necessary to determine exactly why the accident occurred and who was at fault. In fact, an accident investigation can be an important step in any fatal motor vehicle crash. This investigation can help to determine liability which will be important if accident victims decide to pursue compensation for their injuries.

Through a wrongful death suit, family member of those killed in a car accident can obtain compensation from a negligent driver for the financial damages caused by the accident including lost wages, medical costs, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and more. This compensation cannot help them heal from the loss of a loved one, but can give them the financial security they need to focus on their recovery.

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.
