3 injured and 1 killed in deadly car accident

The recent occurrence of a deadly crash has highlighted the dangers of driving. The car accident killed a 79-year-old woman from Pottsville, Pennsylvania. According to reports, she caused the three-vehicle incident that injured three other people. Reports indicate that the crash happened in nearby Maryland on Route 50.

State police reported the 79-year-old was traveling in the area near the intersection of Route 50 and White Lowe Road in her Chevrolet Prizm. This is when she failed to yield the right of way and collided with a vehicle traveling west on Route 50. The other vehicle was a Hyundai Elantra. In the Prizm, the 79-year-old woman was driving with an 80-year-old passenger, also from Pennsylvania. In the Elantra, a 44-year-old was driving with a 43-year-old. The Elantra struck the driver's side of the Prizm in the crash.

All four individuals in these two vehicles were taken to the hospital for medical attention. The 79-year-old and the occupants of the Elantra were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where the elderly woman was pronounced dead. The other two were treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries. The 80-year-old passenger was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore and was reportedly in serious condition. The third vehicle involved in the accident was a Toyota Sienna driven by a 43-year-old. Passengers in the vehicle included two children, one of whom was 11 months at the time of the crash. No one in this vehicle was injured when the Prizm was pushed into the eastbound left-turn lane on Route 50, colliding with the van.

Accidents like this one should serve to remind drivers that the road is not always a safe place. If the circumstances were slightly different in this case, the injured individuals may be able to file a claim against the responsible party. Since the driver has died, it is likely that a case will not be pursued. You should consider speaking to an attorney if you believe that you have a personal injury case that is worthwhile.
