Pennsylvania fatal accident leads to man's death

Pennsylvania authorities are investigating a car accident that happened recently. The fatal accident resulted in the death of one man and injury to the female driver of the only vehicle involved in the incident. By gathering evidence, police hope to learn exactly why the crash occurred.

According to early reports from Pennsylvania officials, the fatal accident occurred around 3:40 a.m. The Highway Patrol suspects that speed was a factor in the crash. It appears that the female driver lost control of her vehicle as she drove southbound on Highway 17. The car ran off the shoulder of the road as a result of the loss of control.

The driver over-corrected the vehicle and ended up sliding sideways on the roadway to the median. The car then flipped over several times before coming to a rest on its roof in the southbound lanes. As a result of the incident, the passenger in the vehicle was thrown from the car. He died at the scene.

Now the driver of the car may find that she faces liability for the wrongful death of her passenger. As is often the case in fatal accident cases such as this one, the survivors of the deceased may find that they can make a claim using our state's wrongful death laws. Such claims are not available to the survivors of all fatal accident victims, but in many cases where the actions of an individual lead to a death, there may be liability for the person at fault. To determine their ability to make a claim, the survivors may wish to review all applicable Pennsylvania laws that apply to their situation.
