Two teenagers suffered injuries in a Pennsylvania car accident when one car turned left in front of another, according to a news report. The two-car crash occurred when a 19-year-old man driving a Chevy Lumina turned his car left onto Route 51 in the path of a Cadillac El Dorado that was northbound on Route 51. The Cadillac was also being driven by a 19-year-old, Pennsylvania State Police said. The El Dorado struck the back of the Lumina causing severe damage to both vehicles.
The driver of the Lumina sustained moderate injuries, but his 18-year-old female passenger suffered severe injuries. The driver of the Cadillac was not injured and his passenger suffered only minor injuries. The driver of the Cadillac said he had no time to stop because the Lumina cut out in front of him and that he couldn’t get out of the way because there was another car next to him in the adjacent lane.
