Head Injuries Prove Fatal In Dauphin County Pickup Truck Accident

Two Pennsylvania residents suffered fatal head and spinal cord injuries when their pickup truck crashed into concrete dislodged by a pickup truck in Dauphin County recently, according to an article published in The Patriot-News.

The two pickup truck passengers, who were from Burnham and Lewistown, were driving down State Routes 22/322 in Middle Paxton Township when a tractor-trailer coming from the opposite direction struck the concrete divider in the center of the road. The impact knocked chunks of concrete onto the pickup truck and through the windshield. The two victims suffered severe head and neck injuries from the concrete, which ultimately proved to be fatal.

A third passenger in the truck was not injured in the Pennsylvania truck crash. The tractor-trailer driver was also unhurt. Police are still trying to determine what caused the tractor-trailer to veer into the concrete barrier.
