Pennsylvania Route 422 plagued by string of large truck crashes

Four serious accidents with injuries and one death have occurred on Route 422 in Pennsylvania in less than six weeks. Each accident involved a large truck.

Winter weather played a role in one accident when a pickup slid on the snowy highway and hit a tractor-trailer in Plumcreek. The man driving the pickup died. Three days before this incident a coal truck hit a school bus and injured four children when snow had reduced visibility. This accident was on the heels of another school bus crash. That school bus driver was badly injured when a tanker truck rear-ended the vehicle.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the most recent accident seriously injured two people and left two more people with minor injuries. In this accident, a tri-axle coal truck driven a 31-year-old male driver rolled onto its side and slid into oncoming traffic. It hit a GMC Sierra 3500 pickup that was subsequently rear-ended by a Cadillac Escalade. State police continue to investigate the cause of this crash.

Some car crashes are found to be caused by negligent actions of one or more drivers. When a person is injured in a car accident, he or she might be able to get money to pay for medical bills and ongoing therapy depending on the situation. If the evidence from the crash investigation indicates negligence, then a personal injury lawsuit might result in the recovery of damages. The person could consult with an attorney to find out if the situation meets the standards necessary to make financial claims upon a responsible party.
