Two people are dead after a tragic crash in Pennsylvania and an infant is in critical condition. All were in the same car, a small Honda Civic.
The three were apparently related. The eldest was a 68-year-old woman and the younger woman, who was 26 years old, was her daughter. The injuries they suffered in the crash were so severe that they were declared dead at the scene.
The infant’s relationship to the other two has not yet been released, but the baby was in the Civic with the two women. Emergency crews were able to remove the child from the mangled vehicle and was then rushed to Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
The crash happened at the intersection of Bender Road and Hanover Road, in Union Township. Exact details are sparse at this time, but it appears that the Civic got t-boned by a much larger Ford pickup truck. On the map, the intersection of the roads appears to happen at a bit of a strange angle, rather than showing two perfectly perpendicular roads.
There were at least three people in the Ford truck. They suffered serious injuries, but all seem to have survived. They were a man, a woman and a child, all of unspecified ages.
Intersections are one of the most dangerous places on the road, with a high percentage of accidents happening where cars have to cross each other’s paths. Even careful drivers can get hit in a split second when someone else makes a mistake. If you get injured or lose a loved one, be sure you understand your legal options for financial recovery. An experienced attorney can help explain the process moving forward when you’re ready.
