Vehicle Crash on Pennsylvania Turnpike
Beaver County, PA (June 27, 2018) – On Wednesday morning, around 1:30 a.m., a trailer-tractor crashed into a van parked on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. According to the police, the accident happened between Cranberry and New Castle, in the westbound direction of the turnpike. Police also state that the accident was so severe that two people were flown to the nearest hospital. The passengers are suffering from severe injuries; however, they are expected to recover with proper treatment. It’s currently unknown whether the two injured persons were both in the van, or if one was in the trailer-tractor.
Police state that the front and back of the van was damaged and had to be towed from the crash site. The turnpike was blocked off for several hours, which caused traffic to be detoured for 50 miles.

Because there isn’t enough information regarding the case, the person at fault is unknown. Once investigators determine the state of consciousness the trailer-tractor driver was in, the speed the driver was driving, why the van was parked on the turnpike, and whether the van had hazard lights on, there will be sufficient information to file a claim. Regardless, because two people were flown to the hospital, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed.
