Chester Fatal Auto Accident

Michael Tangora of Hookstown died after a two-vehicle collision in Chester, Pennsylvania on U.S. Route 30, the Herald Star reports. Hancock County Sheriff's officials said the head-on collision occurred when an eastbound truck on the highway traveling at a high rate of speed crossed the center line and struck a car. Two others – Anita Benz and Glenn Robert Krugle III, were airlifted to Pittsburgh area hospitals for treatment of injuries they sustained in the car crash. This fatal auto accident is still under investigation.

The consequences of an auto accident in Philadelphia can be devastating. As it occurred in this case, major injuries or death could occur as a result of an auto accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) approximately 40,000 people die in the United States as a result of traffic accidents.

Also as in this case, auto accidents can occur as a result of someone's negligence or error. In this case, one of the drivers crossed over the center line and collided head on with the other vehicle. Distracted driving, reckless driving or driving under the influence is also considered "negligence" in Pennsylvania.
