Four people were injured in a Manchester Township four-vehicle accident on October 31 on Route 70 when one vehicle crossed into oncoming traffic. The accident occurred around 12:42 p.m. near mile marker 41.5 and, according to authorities, the exact cause for the accident is still under investigation.
According to police Capt. Lisa Parker, a Honda Civic heading west on Route 70 crossed the centerline of the road, causing a head-on collision with a Subaru heading east. A Ford van heading west and a Buick heading east were also involved in the collision. The driver of the Honda that drove into traffic suffered severe internal injuries and leg fractures in the collision and was taken to a nearby hospital via medevac helicopter. The driver of the Subaru that was struck head-on suffered a head injury that also required him to be flown via medevac helicopter. The driver of the Ford van suffered minor injuries and the driver of the Buick complained of head and knee pain. The passengers in the Buick refused medical treatment at the scene.
Motor vehicle accidents involving multiple vehicles can cause serious injuries to those involved. It takes only a moment of distraction to cause a driver to veer into a different lane, potentially causing a fatal accident. When drivers are negligent or reckless, they deserve to be held accountable for all injuries that occur as a result of any accidents.
