McKeesport, PA (September 19, 2023) – A major accident reported in the McKeesport area left several people injured.
The accident occurred at around 12:40 p.m. on September 18.
Reports from the McKeesport Police Department show that a garbage truck was traveling on 13th Street during the afternoon hours. For unknown reasons, the vehicle went down the hill and went through the intersection with Walnut Street.
As the vehicle passed through the intersection, it collided with a red pickup truck. The impact of the crash sent the garbage trucks through a fence at the Ryco Plumbing store before colliding with seven parked vehicles. The garbage truck then crashed through the building.
A total of four people were injured as a result of the crash. The victims were transported to local hospitals for emergency care.
The crash is currently being investigated.
We hope the injured victims recover quickly.
Truck accidents are often devastating. The size and weight of these vehicles make them more likely to cause severe damage and injuries to anything they come in contact with. Unfortunately, accidents involving trucks, big rigs, and other commercial vehicles leave thousands of people injured every year in our state.
People involved in truck accidents are more likely to suffer serious injuries that require medical care. For this reason, it is important that they take legal action following their accidents to ensure they have the financial resources they need for medical costs and more.
After a truck accident, victims have the ability to file legal claims against those who are responsible. A personal injury claim can be filed against the driver of the truck, the trucking company, the cargo company, a maintenance company, or any party that is responsible, either in whole or in part, for the accident taking place. Truck accidents can and often do involve multiple defendants, which increases the complexities of these claims. This makes it imperative that victims seek guidance from truck accident lawyers as soon as possible to ensure they have the best chance of getting justice.
A multi-vehicle accident lawyer will be able to investigate the accident and identify all of the factors that contributed to the crash. They will help you take legal action against the responsible parties so that you are able to maximize your recovery and cover the losses and damages you face during this difficult time.
