Pennington man dead in 3-car crash

We Will Take Care Of You

A Pennington man was killed along with a young woman in an auto accident on Interstate 95 near Bensalem, Pennsylvania. The 51-year-old victim was a former Hopewell Valley school board candidate. He was killed when an Oldsmobile Bravada, driven by the 19-year-old female, lost control in the southbound lanes and jumped the median, landing on top of his van.

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Three passengers, a 53-year-old woman and two boys, 15 and 17, were extracted from the van and taken to hospitals with unknown injures. A third car, driven by a 49-year-old woman, also hit the two cars after the crash, and she was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The accident caused closures of all lanes of I-95 for several hours as police and rescue personnel worked to investigate and clean up the accident scene. Traffic was diverted to a secondary road while the investigation continued.

Victims of a car accident often have the right to sue for damages. When the person who caused the accident is killed, that person's estate may be liable for the injuries caused to other people. In this case, a personal injury attorney can examine the accident reports and information from the investigation and determine the best way for the victims in this case to collect damages for their injuries. For the victim who died, a personal injury attorney can assist the man's family in filing a wrongful death claim, if it is warranted, to recover compensation for the loss of their loved one.
