Upper Saucon Township, PA (August 12, 2018) On Sunday morning, around 9:00 a.m., a fatal multi-vehicle collision occurred on Route 309 and Center Valley Parkway. Officials state the collision involved a trailer tractor, an SUV, a Jeep, and another unidentified black vehicle. The Jeep headed eastbound and somehow collided with the black car causing the other vehicles to collide into one another. Two people suffered fatal injuries, and EMS transported an injured victim to a local hospital. An investigation into the crash is currently ongoing.
Distracted driving, which is also a form of negligence, is a major cause of car accidents. Drivers think they can multi-task and still drive safely, which is not always true. Texting, eating, conversing with a passenger, applying makeup, and programming a GPS are all distractions that take the drivers’ focus off the road. Life-threatening collisions occur within seconds of a distraction. If investigators determine that distracted driving caused this collision, then whichever driver is responsible will have to endure the consequences.
Because two people suffered fatal injuries, their families can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an attorney. The other injured victim can file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a personal injury lawyer. It’s very unfortunate that two people lost their lives in this collision. It’s also unfortunate that someone suffered injuries, too.
