While it is not uncommon for fatal accidents to happen on Pennsylvania roads during the holidays, they will likely produce life-long trauma for those who loose loved ones at this time of the year. Apart from the tragic loss of life, the surviving family will relive the sadness every year. One family lost a loved one in a fatal auto accident that occurred in Erie two days before Christmas.
The roadways are often the scene of various types of car accidents. Whether it is vehicle versus vehicle or pedestrian versus vehicle, the impact of a car crash could seriously or even fatally injure a person, driver or passenger. No matter the cause of the crash, it is important that all those involved do not leave the accident site before the investigation is conducted. If a person fails to remain at the site of the crash, they could endure criminal liabilities.
