Fatal Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania

Worcester Twp., PA – Two Killed in Truck Wreck on Pennsylvania TurnpikeMore than 1100 fatal accidents take place every year in the state of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, thousands of these accidents result in fatal injuries. When commercial vehicles and large semi-trucks are involved in these accidents,  the chances of fatal injuries are dramatically increased. Semi-trucks can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. When they strike other vehicles on the road, especially motorcyclists, the results can be catastrophic.

Unfortunately, we see many accidents take place as a result of driver negligence. Factors that often contribute to fatal truck accidents in the United States include:

  • Impaired driving (alcohol or drugs)
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving

When drivers fail to operate their vehicles in a safe and considerate manner, they can cause severe harm to others sharing the road. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents caused by these and other acts of negligence leave families completely torn apart.
