Each and every motor vehicle accident yields unfavorable results, and some more than others. A multi-vehicle crash took place in Cranberry Township during the morning rush hours today, which left 2 dead while possibly injuring several others. The accident occurred in Venango County on Route 157 near Horsecreek Road.
Franklin state police said that the accident caused a road closure that lasted until around noon. The roads were eventually reopened and not many other details have been released at this time. Authorities are being left to speculate whether damages were minor or anywhere up to and including catastrophic injuries. As of right now, we know that three vehicles were involved in the wreck, and other than the two deaths confirmed by Venango County Coroner, Christina Rugh, no other serious injuries have been confirmed.
At Edelstein, Martin & Nelson, we are aware of the detrimental outcomes that typically arise after these kinds of unfortunate accidents. Wrongful death claims might be filed since two people lost their lives as a result of this crash. Nevertheless, fault makes a big difference in these accidents, and whether or not other injuries were involved will most likely determine the ultimate decision. Regardless, no one chooses to be in these kinds of accidents; least of all, the victims.
