Allentown woman hit by snow plow will spend 3 weeks in hospital

Every time a motorist gets behind the wheel of a vehicle in Pennsylvania, he or she is responsible for driving cautiously and being aware of others who may be in or near the roadway. Unfortunately that responsibility is not always observed, and when the wrongdoer is driving a truck, serious injuries can occur. It almost goes without saying that a truck accident involving a pedestrian rarely ends well for the victim. One 20-year-old Allentown woman nearly lost her life when she was struck by a snow plow at about 7 p.m. on Jan. 21. The woman was said to be walking to a friend's house in Allentown when she was struck by the plow on Linden Street while crossing American Parkway.

Authorities say that the 60-year-old mother provided a keg of beer to her son and his friends for a high school graduation party. Four of the son's friends were involved in a serious car accident which left two 19 -year-olds and an 18-year-old dead.

Sick drivers may cause as many car accidents as drunk drivers

In our last post we discussed the serious drunk driving car accident which left one Pennsylvania teen dead and landed his mother in jail. It is well known that drunk drivers are more likely to be involved in fatal accidents than sober drivers. It is also well known that many personal injuries and non-fatal accidents are attributable to intoxicated drivers.

Pennsylvania woman charged with killing teen in DUI crash

Drunk driving is a serious problem throughout Pennsylvania and a drunk driving car accident can tear families apart in an instant. Even a single drink can increase the likelihood of a fatal crash and individuals with severe substance abuse problems are perhaps the greatest risk on area roads.

Pedestrian deaths increase as car accident deaths dip

The crosswalk can be one of the most dangerous areas of the neighborhood. New statistics recently released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that car accident fatalities are on the decline but that pedestrian accidents are becoming increasingly common. Pedestrian accidents are frequently very serious because a pedestrian has almost no protection from the impact of a car. Most of these accidents are attributable to driver negligence, which is why an injured pedestrian should contact an experienced Lehigh Valley personal injury attorney after a pedestrian accident.
