3-vehicle accident kills 1, injures 5

A major accident in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, on August 15 resulted in one death and sent five other people to hospitals for medical treatment. Pennsylvania State Police said that the incident happened just before 8 a.m. on Route 30 at the intersection with Mountain View Avenue.

A 63-year-old Chambersburg man was driving a vehicle east when it began drifting into oncoming lanes. When it crossed into the westbound lanes, the vehicle entered the path of a vehicle driven by a 51-year-old Gettysburg man. The two vehicles collided, which spun the eastbound one into the path of a third vehicle that was traveling west and was driven by a 33-year-old South Mountain woman.

The third vehicle in the crash came to rest on the shoulder of the northern side of Route 30. Authorities said the Gettysburg native went into cardiac arrest at the accident site and was later pronounced dead at Chambersburg Hospital. Three passenger of the 33-year-old woman's vehicle were also taken to Chambersburg Hospital. The two other drivers were airlifted to York Hospital. The wreck was still being investigated as of 6:00 p.m. on the day it occurred.

Losing a loved one suddenly is a difficult hurdle for any family to overcome. Problems can pile up even more when a family has to deal with losing a deceased person's income on which they depended. In such instances, family members can be left to cope with emotions as well as financial trouble. Some families in those situations may wish to speak with an attorney experienced with wrongful death lawsuits who could advise them on the viability of such litigation.
