Truck accident lawyers: Snyder county crash kills Selinsgrove man
A recent truck crash in Snyder County claimed the life of a man from Selinsgrove, Northumberland County. The wreck happened in Shamokin Dam, PA, and had Routes 11 and 15 backed up for miles.
The accident occurred when a car and tractor trailer were stopped at a red light. A second tractor trailer collided with the stopped vehicles; the car between the trucks was crushed by the impact, and the driver of that vehicle was killed.
The police investigation into the crash and the driver who struck the stopped vehicles is underway.
As truck accident lawyers, we have, unfortunately, seen cases very similar to this one. Marion Munley, current Chair of the American Association for Justice Trucking Litigation Group, and Daniel Munley who served as Chair in 2011, travel the country to educate other lawyers and lawmakers about the common causes of truck accidents like this one, and how to advocate for victims’ families. They also represent truck crash victims and their families who have been through terrible accidents, and help them to rebuild their futures.
Some of the most common causes of rear-end truck crashes are driver distraction, driver fatigue, speeding, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Less frequent causes include things like mechanical failure or a medical episode such as a seizure or stroke that would cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
