York County, PA – One Killed in Truck Accident on I-83 near Exit 19

York County, PA (October 10, 2023) – The York County Coroner confirmed that one person lost their life as a result of a truck accident that took place early Monday morning, October 9.

At approximately 2:45 a.m., the York County 911 dispatch received a request for assistance at the scene of an accident that took place on Interstate 83.

Reports show that a tractor-trailer and one additional vehicle collided on the southbound side of the interstate near Exit 19. The impact of the collision caused the second vehicle to go over the guardrail and down the embankment. The vehicle came to rest against a tree on its roof.

The incident prompted officials to close down several lanes in the area as they worked to clear the scene.

The driver of the vehicle, who has not been identified to the public, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

At this time, the crash is being investigated.

We offer our sympathies to the family of the victim who died in this crash.

Fatal Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania

Fatal truck accidents take the lives of countless people across the United States every year. Here in Pennsylvania, we see innocent lives lost far too often as a result of these accidents.

When victims die as a result of fatal truck accidents, families are able to take legal action against the response party. Unfortunately, truck accidents are far more complex as they can have multiple people held liable for the resulting damages.

After a truck accident, an investigation is needed to determine who is liable for the losses and damages your family faces. Some potential parties include:

  • Truck Driver: If a driver was negligent while operating their vehicle, such as they operated it while under the influence or they were speeding, they can be held liable for any resulting damages from an accident.
  • Truck Company: If the trucking company did not properly vet drivers before hiring them, and an accident occurs, they can be held liable for inadequate training or hiring practices.
  • Cargo Company: If there was negligence on behalf of the cargo company when loading packages or cargo onto the truck trailer, they could be held liable for any crashes that were caused as a result of shifting or spilling.
