Fatal car crash leaves family, friends, students stunned

The loss of a loved one can be hard to swallow, especially when it comes suddenly and unexpectedly. Car accidents are often the culprits that take away the life of someone without any previous indication of doing so and this is what recently happened to a teen from Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. The 17-year-old was a well-known lacrosse and football player for the Haverford School. He was a senior set to graduate and was expected to play Division I lacrosse at a university in South Carolina before he passed away.

Reports indicate that the 17-year-old was driving his 2002 Toyota Camry on Smithbridge Road. He was heading west when he began to navigate a curve in the road. Police believe that he failed to navigate the curve properly, swerving into the eastbound lane and striking the passenger side of a Land Rover driven by a 17-year-old female. The accident occurred on the 300 block of Smithbridge Road in Concord, Pennsylvania. The female driver only suffered minor injuries while the male driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

An official with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said that there were seven accidents on this stretch of the road between 2008 and 2012. The official noted that this is not a large number of accidents when looking at the average number of vehicles that travel this stretch everyday: about 10,000. Still, the accident is a tragic one that has left many people without an individual that meant something to them.

His family and friends are in mourning and have paid their respects to him by wearing ribbons and his number at a recent lacrosse game that his twin sister was playing in. The crash remains under investigation and if a responsible party is discovered -- be it the other driver or perhaps the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation -- a personal injury lawsuit could be pursued. Attorneys that specialize in this area of law are invaluable in cases such as this and should be contacted before making the filing.
