Fatal motorcycle accident on Pennsylvania road kills 2

The afternoon of June 30 saw the death of two people after a motorcycle versus car accident in Pennsylvania. The Upper Southampton fatal accident happened when the motorcycle struck the front end of a Chevy Impala that was trying to make a left-hand turn. The motorcycle driver died shortly after the accident at a local hospital.

The motorcycle was reportedly traveling eastbound on Street Road when a car attempted a left-hand turn onto Knowles Avenue. The impact caused the motorcycle's passenger to be thrown from the bike. She died at the scene. The motorcycle's driver was taken to a nearby hospital but died soon after arriving.

Pennsylvania police are continuing to investigate the tragedy. As they do, they are asking the public for information and for any eyewitnesses to step forward. In addition, they may review physical evidence such as skid marks on the roadway. This evidence can assist in determining the speed and direction of the vehicles at the time of the crash.

Though no indication has been made that either of the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol in this fatal accident, there may be toxicology tests run on both individuals. These types of tests are often standard procedure for fatal accident investigations and can assist authorities in determining potential causal factors in a collision. Finding an answer to the question of what happened may help bring some closure to grieving families who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
