A 26-year-old woman and a male passenger were killed in a Philadelphia car accident recently after a Chrysler 300 crashed into a home. According to PhillyBurbs.com, the fatal accident occurred on Byberry Road in Upper Moreland. The authorities have stated that there was no evidence of the vehicle braking before it crashed into the home. Both the driver and the passenger were killed. Officials suspect that alcohol or speeding may have played a part in this fatal crash, but an investigation and toxicology exam are still underway.
Anytime someone is killed in a Philadelphia single-vehicle accident, there are a number of questions that must be asked. Did another vehicle force the vehicle off the roadway? Did a dangerous roadway contribute to the crash? Did a defective auto part such as faulty brakes or a defective tire cause the driver to lose control? There are a number of reasons why a vehicle may veer off a roadway and driver negligence is not always the answer.
According to the 2009 Pennsylvania Crash Facts and Statistics, 47 percent of all car accidents in Pennsylvania were single-vehicle crashes. The family of someone killed in a single-vehicle crash would be well-advised to preserve the vehicle in its damaged state for a thorough investigation by a qualified expert.
