Snowmobile driver injured in collision with station wagon

As winter begins to thaw, people throughout Pennsylvania are putting away their snowmobiles and getting out the boating and fishing gear. Unfortunately, many people won't be able to enjoy the outdoors as much this year because of injuries suffered in snowmobile accidents.

That may be the case for a 43-year-old man whose snowmobile recently collided with a station wagon. Authorities believe that a mechanical failure may have played a part in the crash.

The snowmobile driver was reportedly travelling on a trail as he approached a highway at about noon. Presumably, there was plenty of light out. As he crossed the road, a station wagon hit him. The snowmobile was demolished, and the car was also damaged.

The two people in the station wagon came away uninjured, but the man on the snowmobile was transported to a hospital for treatment.

Police indicated that a part of the snowmobile may have been faulty. Often in such cases, snowmobile riders run into problems such as stuck accelerators, defective brakes and defective steering.

When a recreational vehicle and a car or truck collide, it is also important to investigate which vehicle had the right of way. In many cases, these accidents resemble motorcycle crashes, and a personal injury attorney with experience in these types of collisions may be able to clarify the available legal options for proving liability.

Depending on exactly where the accident occurred, personal injury claims involving ATVs and snowmobiles may also involve premises liability. All of these matters should be taken into account when seeking compensation for medical expenses and other damages resulting from a recreational vehicle accident.
