South Shenango Township, PA (July 3, 2023) – Three people reportedly required medical attention after a two-car collision in Crawford County last week, according to Shenango Township officers.
Local officers say two people in a Kia Soul were heading east on Westford Road when a Ford Edge driving south on Linesville Road collided with them at around 3:20 p.m. Preliminary reports indicate that the driver of the Kia Soul crashed into the Ford Edge in the center of the intersection after its driver failed to notice a stop sign.
Both vehicles ended up in ditches after the collision, with the Kia flipping over. All three victims, including the Ford’s driver, were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries.
The fire departments of Fallowfield and Jamestown and the Meadville Ambulance all responded to aid those injured. However, the victims’ current conditions are unknown, and Shenango Township officers are continuing their investigation in the meantime.
Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their families. We hope for their complete recovery.
Car Accident Injuries in Pennsylvania
Every year in the United States, millions of people are hurt, and tens of thousands are killed in car accidents. The number of individuals who died in motor vehicle accidents in the United States in one recent year alone was 36,906, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported.
Pennsylvania has roughly 120,000 miles of roads and highways and expected 102.8 billion miles of travel annually. Unsurprisingly, there were 115,938 car accidents reported in Pennsylvania in 2022. And tragically, there were 1,179 fatalities and 67,012 injuries due to these accidents.
Adding insult to injury, most motor vehicle accidents are attributed to careless errors and driver negligence. For instance, driving when intoxicated or distracted by a mobile phone are two top examples of what might be considered negligent driving.
With that said, getting compensation may seem like an uphill struggle if you’ve suffered serious injuries or are unsure of your legal options after a vehicle accident, even if you believe another motorist’s negligence actions caused your wreck.
