Multi-vehicle crash in Pennsylvania leaves one dead

A recent multi-vehicle accident in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, left one man dead. It took two days for police to identify the deceased individual, who, they eventually learned was a 59-year-old man from Philadelphia. The tractor-trailer accident, which involved a semi-truck, the vehicle driven by the 59-year-old and two other vehicles, happened on I-76 between Route 202 and Gulph Mills Road.

Around 11:30 a.m., a Nissan Murano and a Ford F-150 were approaching heavy traffic on I-76, so the two cars decreased their speeds. A tractor-trailer, following behind one of the vehicles, was too close to compensate for their deceleration and braked hard. The driver was originally in the right lane, but swerved into the left lane with the hope of avoiding an accident. A 2007 Dodge Caliber, driven by the 59-year-old man, was hit in the rear by the tractor-trailer as it attempted to avoid an accident with the other vehicles.

Both other vehicles ended up involved anyway. The woman behind the wheel of the Ford truck said that she only remembers accelerating and moving to the side of the road as the semi approached from behind. Her vehicle was lightly damaged. The drivers of the tractor-trailer, Nissan and Ford were all injured. The man in the Dodge Caliber was killed.

So far, no charges have been filed by the law enforcement agency in charge of investigating the crash. A blood sample has been taken from at least one of the drivers involved in the crash to ensure that alcohol intoxication or the influence of drugs had nothing to do with the crash.
