Philadelphia, PA (April 4, 2023) – Officials reported that at least two victims may have sustained injuries in a multiple-vehicle crash that unfolded in the Holmesburg area on Tuesday evening, April 4.
At around 10:40 p.m., there was a crash on the northbound side of Interstate 95, close to the exit for Cottman Avenue.
Philadelphia Police Department officers and nearby emergency medical services responded quickly after the incident. While that was happening, emergency medical technicians rushed all victims to the nearest medical facility.
The authorities have not yet determined what caused the wreck. The inquiry is ongoing, and authorities have provided no further details.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families.
Philadelphia-area Rear-End Collisions
In 2014, rear-end collisions were the second most common kind of accident involving multiple cars in the state of Pennsylvania. Every motorist in Pennsylvania must be on high alert, particularly because an average of 20,000 multi-vehicle accidents occur every year in the Commonwealth.
It goes without saying that a rear-end collision is a near certainty if you’re driving recklessly. True enough, drivers who ignore stop signs are the primary cause of rear-end incidents in the Keystone State. It can be obvious who was to blame in a rear-end accident, but in other cases, the chain of events that led up to the disaster might be completely mysterious.
It is usual practice to focus only on the front end of a vehicle when it sustains damage. However, deaths might occur in incidents like head-on collisions. Even low speed rear-end crashes can cause serious injuries and costly property loss.
In a rear-end accident, the other driver’s speed will primarily determine your injuries. A lot of accidents happen when the automobile behind suddenly stops. If you find yourself in a traffic jam and need to keep going forward, you may benefit from the forward momentum of the car in front of you.
As soon as a passenger gets into a car and buckles up, the seat automatically adjusts to a more relaxed posture. Crashing into a seat or headrest while driving at high speeds may have serious consequences, some of which may not become evident for many hours or days.
You may be entitled to significant compensation for your medical bills, missed earnings, and other damages if you were hurt in a rear-end collision that was not your fault.
It is common practice for insurers to look for ways out of paying for an automobile accident victim’s long-term care, lost income, and lost earning potential after an accident that leaves their client permanently handicapped.
