Fatal truck collision kills 2 pedestrians in New Milford

Any Pennsylvania truck accident is understandably frightening. When the vehicle involved is a big rig, the consequences for anyone or anything standing in its way are grave. When one or more pedestrians are involved, we shudder to even read the news report. Tragically, a collision on Feb. 25 claimed the lives of two pedestrians north of the Lehigh Valley up in Susquehanna County.

Details of the collision, said to have occurred at about 2:21 a.m., are limited. What is known is that the fatal crash took place in New Milford on Route 11. Authorities have indicated that the driver has been placed under arrest for multiple violations, the details of which were not disclosed in an early news report. It was also stated that authorities are continuing their investigation into the cause of the accident.

Any traffic fatality is a tragedy. The families of the two men must now deal with the sudden and senseless loss of life as they grieve and prepare to deal with the consequences of the collision. They will surely await the results of the formal investigation and may ultimately decide to pursue wrongful death claims against all negligent parties.

The law in the Lehigh Valley and throughout Pennsylvania provides for the legal right of a victim's estate to recover monetary damages for the negligent acts of other parties. The families may wish to consider the accident report in conjunction with other facts and circumstances discovered surrounding the incident as they assess their options and determine the appropriate manner in which to proceed legally.
