An accident on Monday afternoon on I-84 in Pennsylvania near the New York state line involved seven people, destroyed 3 cars, and damaged 2 tractor trailers.
The RecordOnline.com of Middletown, NY has reported that state police are investigating the accident which appears to have been caused when the first tractor trailer hit a minivan when traffic was stopped due to construction.
The truck then steered left, hitting a BMW. The BMW hit another tractor trailer. The second tractor trailer was pushed into a Toyota Tacoma.
Debris from the accident was strewn across I-84 and the highway was shut down for hours.
This time of year, when many people are leaving for vacation and traveling on roads they are not familiar with, it’s important to stay alert for changes in traffic patterns and construction areas. It’s easy to lose your focus when driving and suddenly have the traffic in front of you slowed or even stopped due to road work. If you have been injured in an accident involving a tractor trailer and the truck driver was responsible for the accident, you may have a case. Contact the attorney team at Michael J.
