4 injured, 1 dead in Pennsylvania accident

On Behalf of | Mar 8, 2019 | Car Accidents

One young person is dead and four others are injured following a mysterious incident that took place early Sunday morning in Philadelphia on Interstate 95. Because there are still so many unanswered questions surrounding the crash, state authorities have asked the public for any information regarding the identity of a driver who left the scene.

Initially, the accident allegedly involved a rear-end collision between a car and a tractor-trailer. It appears that a third automobile, a dark-colored SUV, later hit one of the car’s occupants after she exited or fell out of the vehicle. 

The car held five occupants altogether: one 34-year-old male driver and four passengers. Two of the passengers were 19-year-old women, while the other two, a man and a woman, were in their 20s. For reasons that are still unknown, the driver of the car brought the vehicle to a halt while still in the southbound lane of I-95. Thereafter, a tractor-trailer struck the car from behind, resulting in the death of one of the 19-year-old women. The other 19-year-old woman later received injuries, for which she is still receiving treatment, after a dark-colored SUV allegedly hit her and then left the scene. 

It is not entirely clear whether the other three people injured in the crash were occupants of the car or if they included the driver of the tractor-trailer. In any event, the injuries they received were minor. 

Anyone who has received injuries or lost family members as a result of a car accident has the right to seek justice with the assistance of an attorney if he or she so chooses.
