Speeding driver wreaks havoc on highway

Pennsylvania residents might like to know about a Thanksgiving day crash that killed three people. The authorities said that a 22-year-old Pittsburgh man with a suspended license caused the accident and was traveling at more than 100 mph. The man faces charges for vehicular homicide, aggravated assault with a vehicle and criminal homicide.

The wreck happened around 10 miles southeast of Pittsburgh at the junction of Route 48 and U.S. Route 30. The authorities pulled over a man at around 2:30 p.m. because of an illegal turn, and the driver took off from a convenience store parking lot when East McKeesport police officers discovered that he was wanted for a probation violation. The man was charged with drug possession with intent to deliver in March 2016 while on probation for a 2012 drug possession conviction. He was paroled after initially being sentenced to jail time, and his probation for the first drug possession incident was extended.

The Pittsburgh man hit one vehicle that caught fire and contained two adults and a toddler, and all the people in the vehicle were killed. An SUV was also struck by the Pittsburgh man's vehicle, and the three women in the SUV survived but suffered injuries.

When car accidents are caused by negligence, those who suffered injuries could seek compensation for related expenses like medical costs and property damage. Negligence occurs when one driver fails to act in a responsible manner, and this includes drunk driving, texting and driving or speeding. Witness statements and a police report could be used as evidence. One may want to consult an attorney when filing a personal injury claim.
