Philadelphia, PA – Injuries Reported in Car Crash on I-76 at University Ave

May 27, 2022

Philadelphia, PA (May 27, 2022) – Injuries reportedly transpired in the aftermath of a car accident involving multiple cars on a Philadelphia-area highway Friday evening, May 27.

According to authorities from the Philadelphia Police Department, the incident took place at about 8:10 p.m. in the westbound lanes of Interstate 76 at Exit 346 to University Avenue and Vare Avenue. When the accident occurred, many cars that were merging into the left lanes were involved, and the chain reaction that occurred may have been sparked by the stop-and-go traffic that was approaching University Avenue.

Emergency medical technicians and first responders were sent to the scene of the collision in order to provide medical assistance to the wounded individuals. Two persons were reportedly taken to various medical centers in the area for treatment.

Because of the severity of the collision, several lanes in the area had to be shut down for a period of time.

There has been no more information provided. The investigation into the events leading up to the wreck is still underway at this point.

We are sending our most heartfelt thoughts and wishes to the wounded victims in the hopes that they may make a complete recovery.

Traffic Crash Injuries in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth

Every single year, vehicle accidents in our state are responsible for the injuries of thousands of people throughout the Commonwealth. In 2020, well over 100,000 car accidents happened in Pennsylvania, leading to serious injuries or even death for around 61,300 people.

If you were injured in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault, you should make plans to retain a lawyer who will look out for your best interests and advocate on your behalf.

It may be incredibly challenging to file a lawsuit after being injured in a car accident. Without the assistance of a Philadelphia car accident attorney, you will almost definitely find yourself in a position where you are unable to provide satisfactory answers to the concerns that you have. If you have sustained serious injuries, such as any of the following, it is in your best interest to get legal representation from a qualified attorney:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Bones that have been broken or fractured
  • Any related damage to the spinal cord, not to mention paralysis

Accidents of this kind have the potential to significantly disrupt the lives of those who are injured, keeping them confined to hospitals and preventing them from returning to work for a period of many days, weeks, or even months at a time. If you have been wounded in an accident that should have been avoided, you should discuss your case with a personal injury attorney in Philadelphia that you can depend on.
