Walnutport, PA (June 22, 2020) – On Sunday afternoon, June 21, two people were killed in a crash on PA-145.
The accident allegedly took place around 3:40 p.m. when a box truck and a motorcycle collided with one another on the highway.
Police have not yet identified the parties involved but said that a man and woman were both killed in the collision.
Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the collision.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
In 2016, approximately 2.6% of all accidents in Pennsylvania involved motorcycles. This may not seem like a lot but, in most of these accidents, victims either suffered from catastrophic or fatal injuries. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have few protections from other vehicles on our roads. If you have lost a loved one in an accident that is not their fault, it is important that you speak with a wrongful death attorney who has experience in these cases.
