Driver Ejected in Head-On Car Crash

Investigators in Pennsylvania are working to determine the cause of a fatal car accident that happened on Tuesday. According to police, at around 2:30 p.m., a 19-year-old woman was operating her vehicle southbound on Interstate 81 when she crossed several lanes of traffic, crashed through a median, and collided head-on with a northbound vehicle. The driver was ejected during impact and pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver of the northbound vehicle was transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The accident is under investigation.

The chances of an auto accident occurring are great and the average driver will be involved in at least one car accident at some point during their lifetime. The Association for Safe International Road Travel reports that every year in the United States traffic accidents claim the lives of 37,000 individuals. Reckless driving is one of the most common causes of auto accidents and is demonstrated in several forms. Driving under the influence, fatigued driving, speeding, and distracted driving are some examples of reckless driving that occur frequently resulting in a car accident. All drivers are responsible for operating their vehicle with the utmost care to avoid an accident. Unfortunately, millions of drivers fail to obey traffic laws established to prevent any injuries or fatalities from occurring.
