Crash injures elderly woman, shuts Route 890 down

The dangers of driving are known well by many people in Pennsylvania. A recent car crash involved an 84-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man, both from Sunbury, Pennsylvania. The incident left the elderly individual in serious condition at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

According to reports, the crash occurred around noon and shut down Route 890 in Rockefeller Township, Pennsylvania, for approximately one hour. Reports indicate that the accident happened about a mile east of the intersection between Route 890 and Route 61 in Sunbury. State police said that the 84-year-old woman was driving her red 2008 Cadillac CTS and had stopped at a stop sign. She was at the intersection between Route 890 and Kehres Road when she reportedly failed to yield the right of way.

She was attempting to turn left onto Route 890 when she directed her car into the path of the 39-year-old male. He was driving a blue pickup truck, a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500. He was heading east at the time and said that he was unable to stop his vehicle, which would have likely allowed him to avoid the collision. His truck smashed into the side of the Cadillac, setting off the side air bags on the driver's side of her vehicle.

Reports indicate that the 39-year-old received a minor injury but did not need medical attention. An ambulance took the 84-year-old from the scene and state police have stated that she will be charged with a stop sign violation. Several emergency service groups reported to the scene in order to address the accident.

Accidents such as this can often result in claims being filed because of the fact that serious injuries are involved. Those who are involved in such a crash and have been injured may want to consult an attorney who may be able to help seek damages and compensation for their injuries.
