Red Lion, PA (January 6, 2022) – A tractor-trailer crash with injuries was reported on a major roadway in Red Lion on Thursday morning, January 6.

Police confirmed that the accident happened before 10:30 a.m. on US-74 around the area of mile marker 32. A 37-year-old woman was traveling eastbound in the left lane of traffic in her SUV. Her vehicle then collided with a tractor-trailer due to reasons that are not yet known. The accident led to extensive damages.

Paramedics and numerous other responders, including Red Lion fire crews, were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those involved. The driver of the SUV, a 23-year-old passenger, and two preschool children were all injured and transported to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest for treatment. The driver of the tractor-trailer, identified as a 64-year-old man, was not injured in the accident.

Due to the seriousness of the collision, the roadway was closed down to one lane for more than 30 minutes, resulting in delays as crews worked to clear the scene.

The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues at this time.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania

Truck accidents happen every single day in the U.S. and Pennsylvania is no stranger to these horrific accidents. In 2019, it was estimated that approximately 159,000 people were injured throughout 538,000 truck-related accidents in the country. The truth is, many of these accidents are preventable but continue to happen due to the recklessness of others. Because truck drivers tend to spend a lot of time on our roads, they are more likely to cause an accident by distracted driving, falling asleep at the wheel, or other similar causes. If you have sustained injuries in a truck accident, you have options moving forward.

The aftermath of a truck accident can affect your life in many ways, which is why you should speak with a Red Lion truck accident lawyer who has your best interests in mind.

• Truck drivers
• Trucking companies
• Manufacturers
• Cargo loaders

Those who have sustained injuries in a truck accident should know that they have many options during these difficult times. You should be prepared to seek the help of a Red Lion personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident.
