Pennsylvania Mayor Charged with DUI after Rear-End Car Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Pennsylvania mayor allegedly caused a
car accident after he rear-ended a car that then crashed into two other vehicles. He
fled the crash scene and has been charged with driving under the influence.
Police say the mayor was wandering the streets when he was arrested by
responding officers. The mayor has been released and has yet to comment
on the incident.
Car accidents, fender benders to serious crashes, happen all over the United
States every day. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates
that there are 6 million car accidents every year in the U.S. They report
that 40% of those accidents are rear-ended collisions. It is scary to
think that individuals who are involved in a rear-end collisions are usually
helpless to the situation as a driver slams into the back of a vehicle
which can start a chain reaction. These car accidents can cause injuries
that range from minor to serious, but one thing is common, there is a
cost for any medical service you receive. If you are a victim in a rear-end
car accident, do you have the funds to cover extensive medical bills?
Do you just hope insurance will cover it? Think you may have to borrow
money to cover costs? Call a personal injury attorney before asking yourself
any of those questions. A personal injury attorney can help determine
if you have a case against the driver who caused the accident and provides
legal assistance to start your case.
