Head-on collision takes the life of Pennsylvania man

On June 12 in Jefferson Township, a 23-year-old man from Bernville was driving a Volkswagen north on Route 183 around 2:30 a.m. According to police, he was traveling at a high rate of speed. Witnesses that happened to be driving behind the Volkswagon stated that he was weaving and driving off of the roadway. At one point, he overcorrected when re-entering the highway, crashing head-on into a southbound vehicle. A 43-year-old man from Bernville was driving the other vehicle, a 2013 Ford F-150.

The driver of the Volkswagon was not wearing his seat belt, according to police, and was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the Berks County coroner, he succumbed to multiple blunt force trauma. According to police, the driver of the pickup was wearing a seat belt and survived. He suffered moderate injuries and was transported to Reading Hospital via ambulance.

According to authorities, the man's death was ruled an accident. Both the Fire Police and the Fire Department from Bernville provided assistance at the scene. While the crash scene was in the process of being cleared, which took about two hours, both the north and the southbound lanes of Route 183 were closed to traffic.

In a car accident like this one, the injured driver of the pickup truck could be entitled to compensation for his injuries. A personal injury attorney could help the victim to know his rights and the options open to him for filing suit. If he prevails in a lawsuit against the estate of the other driver who hit him, it could help him to cover medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
