Two killed and one injured in a two-car crash

Residents in Pennsylvania are aware that an accident can occur suddenly and instantaneously turn tragic. Car accidents involving vehicles that frequent the roadways can result in accident sites that are sizeable with large amounts of damage, serious injuries and even fatalities. Drivers should be aware of road conditions and adjust their speeds accordingly. It is crucial that drivers remain attentive and avoid texting while driving and other similar distractions. It only takes a few seconds for an accident to occur and it is crucial that the drivers and passengers wear seatbelts at all times.

Two women were killed and another seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in Butler County. The collision occurred shortly after 5:00 p.m. when a driver crossed the centerline and crashed head-on into a vehicle containing two women. Emergency crews responded to the incident and all three involved in the accident were flown to area hospitals. One driver and the other vehicle's passenger were later pronounced dead and the other driver sustained serious injuries.

The investigation of the accident is still ongoing and authorities stated that all three were wearing their seatbelts. A person injured or killed in an accident like this one may have a personal injury claim or wrongful death suit. The family of the deceased may be eligible to receive compensation to assist with the costs of the funeral, medical bills, damages and pain and suffering. The injured party could receive compensation to cover medical bills, rehabilitation, damages and lost wages.

A car accident can occur suddenly, so it is crucial that drivers remain attentive while behind the wheel. It is also important that drivers watch their speeds and maintain their vehicles and reduce their speeds for road conditions.
