Philadelphia, PA (October 22, 2023) –A 24-year-old woman was killed after she was involved in a multiple-vehicle collision that blocked all lanes of I-676 early Sunday morning, October 22.
The accident occurred on westbound I-676 just after 4:00 a.m. on Sunday. One of the vehicles was obstructing the left lane of westbound I-676 at the 5-mile marker after sustaining damage in a prior collision.
Another vehicle traveling in the left lane hit the vehicle, causing a chain-reaction crash that resulted in the woman’s death.
At roughly 9:00 a.m., all of the lanes of I-676 had re-opened again, but authorities are still investigating the circumstances of the crash in the meantime. It’s unclear if any other victims were hurt in the incident.
Our sincere condolences go out to the deceased woman’s family. Our thoughts are with any other injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.
Fatal Vehicle Wrecks in Philadelphia
Fatal motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania take the lives of more than 1,100 people annually. These accidents continue to take place despite the number of laws that we have in place to protect motorists. A significant number of these accidents take place as a result of drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Operating a vehicle while impaired can significantly impact the driver’s ability to maintain control over it and to make responsible decisions.
When victims lose their lives as a result of accidents involving drunk drivers, their families are often able to take legal action. Pursuing a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver can provide families with the financial resources that they need to cover funeral arrangements, burial expenses, and more. If your family member has died as a result of a fatal accident, you must seek legal assistance right away from a Philadelphia wrongful death lawyer.
