Truck accident claims 2 victims on Pennsylvania roadway

A mother and her daughter are dead after a recent tragic Pennsylvania crash. The truck accident that claimed the lives of the two women occurred in South Strabane Township on a recent Saturday. The collision ended in the arrest of the driver of the truck that killed the victims. Authorities charged the truck driver with vehicular homicide.

According to an early report, the women were travelling eastbound when the truck accident occurred. A tractor-trailer truck was travelling westbound on Interstate 70 when the driver lost control of his vehicle. When he lost control, the vehicle traveled across the median of the roadway, where it flipped over and skidded into on-coming traffic.

The female victims of the fatal truck accident were driving a car that was hit and crushed by the skidding tractor-trailer. Both women were killed at the scene. It is unclear why the truck driver lost control of his large vehicle before the accident happened.

Pennsylvania officials will likely review all available evidence of the crash to determine exactly why the truck driver lost control and ran into the victim's car. In such cases, authorities will typically look to physical evidence and speak with eyewitnesses. This is the procedure that regularly occurs in accident investigations and is likely to happen here, though official details of any inquiry have not been published. Once the information is made available, the survivors of the deceased women may find that they are able to make a wrongful death claim against the truck accident for damages caused by the loss of their loved ones.
