It is not uncommon to see crashes at intersections in Philadelphia. In fact, being involved in a collision at an intersection can be one of the likeliest type of collisions people may be involved in. Accidents that occur at intersections can be particularly dangerous because they tend to involve side impacts. These are often more fatal because the carsâ€™ occupants are sitting on the side of the car where the impact occurs with little or no protection.
A side-impact appears to have been the result of a collision at an intersection in Levittown, Pennsylvania recently. The crash resulted in the death of an 85-year-old man who was driving his Buick sedan east on Goldenridge Drive at about 8:50 a.m. He collided with a cement mixer truck that was headed southbound on Edgeley Road. The 52-year-old driver of the cement truck was checked out by medical personnel and evidently did not suffer any major injuries. The 85-year-old was taken to St. Mary Medical Center where he died.
Authorities are still investigating the accident and have not said which driver was responsible for the car accident. They are asking the public to contact them with any information they may have about the crash.
The family of the man killed in this accident may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney about the accident. A lawyer can review their case with them and advise them on the best way to proceed to ensure that they get the compensation to which they are entitled for the death of their loved one.
