Traffic fatality trends in Pennsylvania

If you are like most people in Pennsylvania, you have driven past your fair share of accident scenes on area roads and highways.

Stay safe on the roads this Thanksgiving

Millions of people will get in their cars and travel over the next week for Thanksgiving. And whether you are a college student driving across the state to get home or someone driving across the country to visit relatives, your top priority is likely to get where you are going safely.

Can I file a lawsuit after a car accident?

After a car accident, victims often experience a range of emotions. They can be angry that someone else crashed into them and now they must get their car fixed and possibly miss work.

Beer truck crashes, driver suffers minor injuries

More than a month ago, we wrote a post about four trucks being involved in an accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. There's no information about injuries to the people involved in the crash, and little else to go on in the story. Today, we want to continue the theme of truck accidents on this blog by discussing another wreck -- but one that centers on the cargo being carried by the truck at the time of the accident.

Pennsylvania Turnpike site of 4-truck accident

The Pennsylvania Turnpike was the site of a four-vehicle accident, where all of the vehicles involved were large trucks. Two tractor trailers and two box trucks were involved in the crash, and there are no reports about injuries to the drivers and people involved. In fact, there are almost no details about the crash at all. The one thing we do know is that the northbound lanes were closed for a period of time.
