Philadelphia Multi-Tractor Trailer Accident
On December 3, 2014, at approximately 5:00 a.m., a multi-vehicle tractor trailer accident involving two tractor trailers, a pickup truck, and a car occurred in East Lampeter Township Pennsylvania.
The Township Police reported that a 2011 Freightliner was transporting seed eastbound on the Route 30 bypass early Wednesday morning when he struck the back of another tractor trailer which was stopped in the left hand lane. The Freightliner then careened off into the right hand lane striking a pickup truck and continuing on to strike a Cadillac which was stopped in a right hand turn lane. The Frieghtliner then struck two utility poles, dragged down wires, and knocked out traffic lights. The Cadillac was pushed across the intersection as a result of the impact.
The driver of the Frieghtliner and one of the other drivers were transported to Lancaster General Hospital as the result of their injuries.
The crash resulted in Route 30 being fully closed for several hours and parts of the road remained closed until about 7 p.m. due to required repairs. As on December 4, 2014, the investigation into the cause of the accident remains ongoing.
Unfortunately, people are injured as the result of car accidents every day. Pennsylvania law provides that any person injured as the result of the negligent actions of another may seek financial compensation for the damage that they suffer. These damages can include both economic and non-economic damages. Many times, the types of damages will include pain and suffering, loss of wages, past medical expenses, future medical expenses, and more. Contacting an experienced Pennsylvania Personal Injury Attorney can help an injured person navigate through the complicated legal system and obtain the best possible recovery.
