Harrisburg, PA – Adult Killed in Fatal Car Accident at Cameron St & Shanois St
Harrisburg, PA (August 27, 2022) – Around 10 p.m. on the night of Friday, August 26, an adult was killed in a fatal car accident in Harrisburg.
According to Harrisburg Police, the accident happened at the intersection of South Cameron Street and Shanois Street. When police arrived at the scene, they found that two vehicles were traveling in opposite lanes of traffic when one veered into the other lane. This caused the vehicles to collide head-on with each other. The involved vehicles were badly damaged as a result of the crash.
Several local responders, including paramedics and Harrisburg fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One adult, who has not yet been identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Multiple other parties sustained injuries in the accident. They were hospitalized, though their current conditions are not yet known.
The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic for an extended period of time. Police worked to clear the scene as quickly as possible, which took several hours.
No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing.
We offer our warmest sympathies to the family and friends of the victim whose life was lost in this accident. We also hope for speedy recoveries in the involved victims.
