Pennsylvania crash kills 4 teenagers, injures 2

On Dec. 19, four Pennsylvania teenagers were killed in a car accident when the vehicle they were traveling crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic, causing a collision. The report stated that the teenagers were identified as a 13-year-old female, two 16-year-old males and a 17-year-old male.

It appeared that the 17-year-old was driving a vehicle west on Dairy Road with the other three teenagers as passengers when he struck a vehicle that was being driven by an 18-year-old woman. The collision caused both of the vehicles to catch fire. The vehicle carrying the four teenagers then flipped and struck a tree.

The four teenagers suffered injuries to their heads and torsos that were caused by blunt force trauma. A coroner stated that dental records were needed to make positive identifications for three of the four teenagers. The driver of the other vehicle and her passenger also suffered injuries though the severity of those injuries were not released. Authorities reported that speed was involved in the crash though they did not report which driver was speeding.

Whenever someone becomes involved in a car accident, there is the possibility that the vehicle occupants could suffer serious or even catastrophic injuries. If the other driver is found to be liable, someone who suffered a serious or life-threatening injury can hold that driver responsible for any damages that were sustained. If the liable driver did not survive the accident, the injured person may still potentially file the lawsuit against the driver's estate. The available damages depend on the circumstances of the case; for example, the injured person may seek the cost of hospital bills and the cost of rehabilitation if the injuries were severe enough.
