2 injured in head-on collision

On April 10, a two-car accident in Pennsylvania resulted in two men being flown to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. The head-on collision occurred at 5:45 p.m. when two cars collided on Nyes Road in Lower Paxton Township.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, a car being driven by a 43-year-old Hummelstown man crossed Nyes Road and drove through a guardrail. Afterwards, the man hit a car that was occupied by a 74-year-old male driver and a 61-year-old female passenger. The passenger was uninjured in the car collision, but both of the drivers were flown to Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Derry Township by Life Lion helicopter. By 11 p.m. the following day, there had been no reports issued about the drivers' conditions.

Police say that the 43-year-old driver was not wearing a seat belt, but the other two people who were involved in the crash did have their seat belts on. Following the accident, the younger driver was handed a charge for driving under the influence. It is unclear whether police believed that the impairment was due to either drugs or alcohol or what the results of a toxicology test showed.

A person who has been injured by a driver who was criminally charged after the accident may be able to build a strong personal injury claim. An attorney may be able to assist an injured victim in this situation to gather police reports, eyewitness testimony and toxicology results to establish the negligence and thus responsibility of the at-fault driver. Car accident victims often seek compensation for their hospital bills and lost income.
