Confusing pileup causes four injuries, vehicular damage

A seven-car pileup has left four people injured. The car accident occurred earlier this month at an intersection in Upper Milford Township, Pennsylvania, which is north of Philadelphia.

According to reports, five vehicles were traveling southbound on a city street, either stopped or stopping at a red light at the intersection. Strangely, a car driven by a 69-year-old man from Emmaus, Pennsylvania, approached from behind and attempted passing the line of vehicles.

The man then lost control of his Chevrolet Corvette and first hit the driver's side front end of the car in front of him, which was driven by a 52-year-old female from Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. The man then struck two other vehicles.

After striking these three vehicles, the Corvette came to rest. Its rear end was sticking out into the northbound lane of the street, when a vehicle driven by an 18-year-old male from Macungie, Pennsylvania, came through the intersection. This vehicle collided with the Corvette, pushing it again into one of the vehicles that had already been hit. This caused that car to collide with a truck driven by a 46-year-old man from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which then collided with the vehicle of a 35-year-old woman from Glenmoore, Pennsylvania.

Authorities said that four victims received injuries and were transported to hospitals.

The 69-year-old who allegedly started the incident was charged with failing to drive on the correct side of the road. The man better have a pretty good explanation for why he tried to go around the cars. That is a dangerous maneuver.
