Best known as the place the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport calls home, the borough of Avoca, Pennsylvania, has a rather interesting history. Avoca was originally called Pleasant Valley but had changed its name after another town claimed the name. As a part of the coal mining region, Avoca had suffered a tragedy in 1888 when a train wreck known as the Mud Run Disaster killed 37 residents.
Avoca is also known for the heavy traffic around the airport. With a new roundabout that is just a bit too narrow for tractor trailers, it won’t be long before an accident occurs there. And if you get into a car accident with a truck, you can expect to be seriously injured. That means months in the hospital, worrying about whether the insurance company will pay your bills. Not to mention any living expenses that you are losing because you can’t get to work.
