Pittsburgh, PA – Man Killed, Three Injured in Car Wreck on I-376

Pittsburgh, PA (December 25, 2023) – A deadly collision on Interstate 376 occurred early Monday morning, and the Pennsylvania State Police are now investigating the incident.

PSP Trooper Rocco S. Gagliardi stated that three cars were involved in the accident, which happened near mile marker 78 at around 1:00 a.m. One vehicle reportedly overturned in the left lane of the highway. Shortly thereafter, the driver got out of the car, went over to the shoulder, and was helped by two bystanders who had pulled over to offer assistance.

Another vehicle heading west swerved to avoid the overturned vehicle but overcorrected, hitting the overturned car’s driver, one of the Good Samaritans who had pulled over to help, and the back of another car. The driver of the wrecked vehicle, a 24-year-old man, was taken to UMPC Mercy and later declared deceased by medical personnel. The conditions of the other individuals were unknown, but authorities say that all were hospitalized. An investigation is ongoing, and police asked any witnesses to step forward.

Our sincere condolences go out to the family of the deceased man. Our thoughts are with all injured victims and their loved ones in hopes of their full recovery.

Auto Accident Fatalities in Pennsylvania

Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is an unimaginable tragedy that no one should have to experience. The heartbreaking reality is that it happens far too often, with over 1100 deaths each year in Pennsylvania alone. Various acts of negligence continue to contribute to the number of accidents that take place in Pennsylvania every year. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include failure to follow traffic laws, distracted driving, recklessness, and beyond.

For instance, when drivers do not yield to pedestrians who are passing in the area nearby, they can strike them and cause severe or fatal injuries. Moreover, a lot of people fail to stop at intersections, resulting in severe accidents that result in devastating injuries for those involved. Even worse, it is common for drivers to cause serious injuries that have devastating consequences for others if they ignore hazards or otherwise fail to pay attention to the road ahead. Distractions are one of the leading causes of crashes. People text, talk to others, or even eat while driving.
