A Uniontown driver of Chrysler Sebring was pronounced dead after his vehicle rolled several times on Pennsylvania Turnpike 43 in the northbound lanes near the Pennsylvania-West Virginia border on December 8, 2012. The car accident occurred in the evening and slowed traffic in northbound lanes. State police reported the man had just crossed into Pennsylvania when the accident occurred. No information was available as to whether the wet roadway played any role in the cause of the accident. According to police, the man was traveling at a high rate of speed and the car rolled over several times before coming to a rest. The crash is being investigated.
Car wrecks occur on a daily basis in Pennsylvania, and are disastrous for drivers. When a car crash occurs at high speed, the injuries can be life altering, and even fatal. According to the U.S Census Bureau, more than 10 million people die as a result of motor vehicle accidents every year. Even minor accidents can lead to severe injuries, including traumatic brain injury, property damage, lost wages and medical bills. High-speed impact car crashes can leave victims with permanent injuries and medical bills. Those injuries may also prevent the victim from being able to work or to continue with their daily activities. Many high-speed car accidents occur on the interstate and involve large commercial trucks, big rigs and 18-wheelers. High-speed impact car accidents can be caused by careless driving, a distracted driver, or failure to follow the rules of the road.
Speeding is one of the major causes of deadly car accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in 2009, 33,808 people died in motor vehicle crashes and an additional 2,217,000 people were injured. In the same year, 10,591 lives were lost due to speed-related accidents. The statistics also show that speeding motorists often become involved in accidents when they follow too closely, switch lanes negligently, fail to yield, or when their speeding makes them swerve quickly to avoid striking another vehicle or pedestrian.
