Woman turns into driveway, kills other driver

Most Pennsylvania residents have heard stories about motor vehicle accidents that happen on freeways or long stretches of highways in remote areas. Other accident reports recount crashes in the midst of heavy urban traffic. While certainly these are all scenarios in which wrecks can and do occur, sometimes they can occur when drivers are very near homes as well.

One example of this happened recently in Towanda when a driver was trying to simply enter a driveway. A sport utility vehicle driven by a woman who was 22 years old was making a turn into a driveway along a stretch of Pennsylvania State Road 220. However, instead of successfully entering the driveway, the woman's SUV hit another passenger vehicle head-on. That car was driven by a man who was 60 years old. His car was thrust off of the road and into a carport and step made out of concrete.

Reports indicate that a total of four people were injured in the incident although it is not known which of the two vehicles all of the injured persons were in. The driver of the passenger car that was hit by the SUV was taken to Towanda Medical Center where he eventually died from his injuries. No details have been released about the potential involvement of drugs or alcohol.

Family members of people killed in crashes in Pennsylvania may find talking to an attorney a helpful way to understand how they may pursue compensation for their tragic and senseless loss.
