Double fatality in crash should remind drivers of dangers

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas and New Years are fast approaching. Officials are often concerned about an increase in the number of car accidents seen during this time of year as some people choose to behave irresponsibly and get behind the wheel of their vehicles after having too much alcohol.

Though this does cause an increase in the number of crashes around the holidays, it does not mean that all accidents involve alcohol. Take a recent fatal crash that occurred in Pulaski Township, Pennsylvania. According to reports, the accident involved two vehicles and took the lives of two people. One of the drivers survived the head-on collision but was seriously injured and taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center for medical attention.

The crash occurred late last month around 4:30 p.m. on Route 422 in Lawrence County. The location of the accident is about a mile from the border between Pennsylvania and Ohio.

The cause of the crash is unclear, all that is known is that a car with two men inside collided with a truck that held only the driver. The driver of the car was a 31-year-old man from New Castle, Pennsylvania. He was the one that survived the accident but there is no word indicating his current state of health. His passenger was a 60-year-old man, also from New Castle. The truck was driven by a 62-year-old man from Youngstown, Ohio.

Reports indicate that the accident caused traffic to pile up during the early evening, but there was no indication of how long the traffic was impeded. Such accidents serve to remind other drivers of the dangers of the road and officials urge to take care while behind the wheel.
