Serious car accident leaves 2 injured in Pennsylvania

No matter how careful you are when driving your own car, your safety also depends on the other drivers on the road. Car accidents aren't always caused by those who are driving under the influence, speeding, or driving erratically, as the driver of a Chevy Blazer in nearby Montgomery Township, Pennsylvania, found out the hard way recently.

Local police report that at midday a few weeks ago, the driver in question was travelling over a rise in the road when the car unexpectedly came upon slow-moving traffic. Unable to come to a stop quickly enough, the Blazer apparently slammed into a Hyundai Sonata, which was subsequently pushed into the back of a Dodge Dakota pickup truck.

Authorities state that the front end of the Blazer was severely damaged and the pickup lost its back bumper in the car accident; fortunately these vehicles' occupants were unharmed. This was not the case for the driver and passenger of the Hyundai. Because of the way this car was sandwiched between the other vehicles, emergency personnel were required to remove the driver and passenger. Both were rushed to Abington Hospital for emergency medical treatment.

An investigation into the incident has not yet concluded whether there was any negligence on the part of the Blazer's driver, but drivers always need to be on the lookout for slow-moving traffic. Depending on the police findings, the Hyundai occupants might be able to pursue legal action to seek compensation for the damage for their medical expenses.
