Fatal Car Accidents in Pennsylvania
Fatal crashes in Pennsylvania take the lives of 1100 people annually. Many of these accidents are preventable. One of the most common types of accidents that we see across our state is head-on collisions. These accidents often involve at least one vehicle crossing over the centerline of travel and striking another nearby.
There are several reasons why a driver may cross over the center line of travel on the roadway. Some of the most common reasons include:
- Distractions: When drivers are texting on their phones or otherwise distracted, they may drift into oncoming traffic and cause serious accidents.
- Impairment: Drivers who are under the influence may not be able to maintain control of their vehicles. As a result, they are likely to drift into nearby lanes and strike other cars on the road.
- Failure to Yield: There are many instances where drivers fail to yield to other vehicles while turning at intersections. As a result, they cross over the centerline and strike other vehicles nearby.
