Two persons were killed on November 28, 2012 in a car crash on Route 18 at the border of Erie and Crawford counties. One of the victims has an Ohio address and the other has a Crawford County address. It also has not been determined which person was driving the car that crashed. The incident began around 3 a.m. when Albion Police Department initiated a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Country Fair store at routes 18 and 6N. The vehicle, a 1994 Acura Integra, exited the parking lot, failing to yield to the Albion Police Department. The Acura traveled south on Route 18 out of view at a high rate of speed. The driver lost control, went over an embankment and overturned south of Pennside Road at the border of Erie and Crawford counties. The crash ejected both the driver and passenger in the process. One person was transported from the scene to UPMC Hamot and was pronounced dead at the hospital from injuries sustained in the crash. The other was later pronounced dead at the scene by the Erie County Coroner's Office.
Car accidents make up the bulk of personal injury cases in the US court system. These accidents happen for a variety of reasons – improperly maintained roads, poorly marked signs, and defective parts are just a few examples. The most common reason, however, is driver negligence. There are more distractions today than at any other time in history. Cell phones, portable DVD players, and radios are just a few examples of distractions drivers may have. They may seem harmless, but these distractions can cause serious injuries when they result in car accidents.
Car accidents cause injuries ranging from the less severe but long-term, like soft tissue injuries and whiplash, to the very serious, like brain trauma, lacerations, disfigurement, and even wrongful death.
No motorist should have to pay out of pocket for injuries sustained from negligence of another. Under Pennsylvania law, you are entitled to compensation if you were injured in a car accident or a truck accident as a result of somebody else's negligence. This includes compensation for medical treatment, vehicle repair or replacement, lost income, pain and suffering, and any other expense you now have to pay for as a result of your injuries.
