Head-on crash surprisingly causes no life-threatening injuries

The dangers of driving are often underscored by an accident. But when a head-on crash occurs, most people would assume the injuries suffered are severe or fatal. A recent collision involving an 18-year-old male from Pennsylvania was just such an accident. Two of the three cars involved crashed into each other head-on. Fortunately, no one was killed. Authorities reported that none of the seven people involved had life-threatening injuries.

The 18-year-old will face multiple charges, though, including driving under the influence and six counts of second-degree vehicular assault. According to police, alcohol was involved in the crash. The reported drunk driving accident occurred earlier this month near a fire station on Route 24 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The 18-year-old from Barto, Pennsylvania, was traveling in his 2003 BMW 325XI heading west on Route 24 when he crossed over into the eastbound lane. He collided with a 2008 Honda Odyssey traveling in the opposite direction.

The Honda was being driven by a 50-year-old. Three teenagers were occupants in the vehicle. Another car became involved in the crash soon after the initial impact, crashing into the rear of the Honda. This vehicle was driven by a 25-year-old who was traveling with a 21-year-old passenger. The team from the nearby fire department was the first on the scene, having discovered the accident while returning from another call. According to reports, all individuals involved in the crash were wearing seat belts. Two hospitals were used to treat the injured.

Car accidents happen quite often, giving anyone the chance to become involved in one. If you have been injured by another driver, seek the advice of a legal representative as you may be able to file a claim against the responsible party, especially if police believe the driver was under the influence of alcohol.
