Intellectual disability advocates die in Pennsylvania truck crash

The death of a couple from a nearby state in Kennett Township, Pennsylvania, has left many mourning. According to reports, the two individuals were advocates for people with intellectual disabilities. They were killed in a truck accident involving their vehicle and a tractor-trailer, just across the Pennsylvania state line outside of Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania State Police said that the crash occurred on state Route 41 at Skyview Lane around 6:30 p.m. Before the crash, the man and the woman -- 39 and 45, respectively -- were dining at an area restaurant. They left the restaurant in their Toyota Highlander and made a left turn onto Route 41. That is when the tractor-trailer, driven by a 35-year-old man, collided with the driver's side of the couple's vehicle.

The husband and wife were killed in the wreck, while the truck driver was not hurt. A trooper with the Pennsylvania State Police investigated the crash, and it is not clear whether any charges will be filed. So far, there have been no accusations of blame or any talk of alcohol being involved on the part of the truck driver.

The couple lived in Mill Creek, Delaware. Both individuals were clients of The Arc of Delaware, a group that provides employment and housing support to people with intellectual disabilities. The woman recently attended an event at her bank that involved the governor signing a bill promoting jobs for the disabled.

And while it is still unknown what will come from the accident, it appears that the husband could be at fault. Many assume truck drivers are always at fault in accidents like this, but people need to respect the rules of the road and not make risky maneuvers.
