Chester City, PA -Serious Vehicle Wreck on I-95 at Edgement Ave & I-476

May 8, 2022

Chester City, PA (May 8, 2022) – A car accident was reported on a local roadway in Chester City Sunday afternoon, May 8, at about 3:15 p.m.

Between the exits for Edgemont Avenue and I-476, on Interstate 95 northbound, police and emergency teams were dispatched to the site. They rendered aid at the scene before appearing to transport at least one of the accident victims to a local medical center.

While investigators worked to complete the on-scene part of the investigation and examined the circumstances behind the incident, all but one lane of traffic was shut down.

The victims’ names have not been revealed, and the current state of any injured victims is also unclear.

At this time, our thoughts are with the injured person and their family. We wish them a complete recovery.

Multi-Vehicle Collisions in Pennsylvania

Throughout the span of 2020 alone, there were approximately 104,475 reportable traffic accidents in Pennsylvania. These incidents resulted in the deaths of 1,129 people and left another 61,248 people with minor, moderate, or serious injuries.

Though accident numbers are trending down, on the whole, these motor vehicle wrecks can turn a victim’s life upside down, regardless of its cause or severity.

For countless reasons, it is critical that victims retain a skilled attorney so that they begin their investigation as soon as possible after suffering serious injuries in a preventable wreck. Eyewitnesses must be interviewed, images of the site and car taken, and other evidence must be gathered. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to source evidence, such as security films from surrounding establishments, to support your case.

Adding insult to injury, an insurance provider can and will depreciate or undervalue your accident claim. Emotions can run high if the accident was not your fault and insurers are not cooperating.

However, it’s important to ensure you have the evidence and facts you need. If you were injured in a car accident, explore your legal options by speaking with an experienced Philadelphia car accident attorney. They will guide you through the legal process and aid you in recovering compensation for damages.
