Worcester, PA (October 22, 2023) – At least one person suffered fatal injuries as a result of a crash that occurred on Saturday morning on the southeast side of Pennsylvania.
The accident occurred at around 10:30 a.m. on October 21.
According to reports from the Pennsylvania State Police, a tanker truck and two passenger vehicles collided on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The incident blocked multiple northbound lanes of the road near the Northeast Extension.
The incident prompted authorities to shut down the Turnpike in both directions as they worked to remove debris and damaged vehicles from the scene.
One person suffered fatal injuries in the accident and was pronounced dead on the scene. The number of injured parties is not known at this time.
The state police are actively investigating the crash.
Our sympathies go out to the family of the victim who died in this accident.
Our thoughts are with everyone who was affected by this collision.
Losing a loved one suddenly and unexpectedly can be incredibly hard to deal with. Unfortunately, more than 1,100 people are killed every year in crashes across Pennsylvania. Far too often, these incidents involve semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles.
When it comes to truck accidents, they can be incredibly complex from a legal standpoint. Filing a wrongful death case after the loss of a loved one often requires an extensive investigation. These vehicle collisions often have multiple parties who are identified as liable and responsible for the resulting damages. Common parties identified in truck crashes include:
After identifying the liable party, you must be able to show that they were negligent and that their negligent actions were the cause of the accident. Although this may sound easy, it can be challenging to deal with the self-serving tactics of insurance companies who will argue tooth and nail that your loved one caused the crash. For this reason, it is important to seek help from a fatal truck accident lawyer immediately. Your attorney will be able to handle all communication with the insurance company, build your case, and demand full compensation for all of the losses and damages you face. Even more, they will help to protect your best interest at every step.
