2 Cars Collide After Another Vehicle Runs Red Light
Many times those who are involved in car accidents in Philadelphia are simply caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. A common cause for collisions is drivers not following the laws of the road, including ignoring traffic signals and stop lights. When one driver disobeys the traffic laws, it can cause big problems for other drivers with whom he or she shares the road.
This seems to be the case for a car accident that occurred because one driver is believed to have run a red light in West Goshen Township recently. A work van and SUV that were headed toward one another apparently tried to avoid the car that ran the red light, but ended up crashing into each other instead. The automobile that is thought to have caused the accident was not damaged.
The accident occurred at a busy intersection at East Boot Road and Greenhill Road. When the two vehicles collided, the impact tipped the SUV over, causing it to come to rest on its side across the intersection. The van landed on the lawn of Goshen Fire Company which is located near the intersection.
Four people were injured in the accident; three were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. One of the injured was a child who was restrained in a car seat at the time of the crash.
Those who were involved in this accident were hurt through no fault of their own. They may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney to discuss their right to compensation.
