Today, an Abington Township crash in Pennsylvania caused one person to have to be rescued because of the severe accident. The accident took place very early this morning when a motorist lost control and stopped short of plunging off the edge of the highway. The driver was trapped for 2 hours until first responders were able to extricate them. There is no update on the injuries of the driver, but the road was cleared by 7 this morning.
Loss of control leads to many accidents throughout PA every single day. We know that motor vehicle accidents are unpredictable and can strike at any time, but what happens when a driver loses complete control and what actions should they take to regain that control? As in the Abington Township crash, there is no information regarding how the driver lost control of the vehicle, though many of these accidents take place due to distracted driving or weather conditions causing adverse issues for those on the roadways, especially when they do not reduce their speed accordingly.
If a driver was speeding, texting on the phone at the time of the accident, or was not driving properly according to road conditions and hazards, you may have a claim against the driver.
