Two vehicles were involved in a brutal accident in Pittsburgh recently, leaving all six people involved with injuries. The crash is still under investigation and no one is quite sure how the accident started at this juncture, but what we do know is that the collision was forceful enough to tip one of the vehicles on its side and rip the roof off of the car.
There were three people in each of the vehicles when they collided shortly before 11 a.m. two weeks ago on Oct. 12. No one was seriously injured in the crash, but all six people involved in the crash had to be transported to a local hospital for treatment. The three people in the car that didn't tip over were able to get out of their car on their own -- but two of the three people in the vehicle that tipped over had to be extracted by emergency crews.
We won't know anymore about this crash for some time as the police fully investigate the matter. For now, we can only speculate. All of the usual suspects are on the table in terms of possible causes. Were any of the drivers distracted? Were any of the drivers using drugs or under the influence of alcohol? Were any of the drivers operating their vehicle in an otherwise unsafe manner, such as speeding?
If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," then the driver at fault could be in a lot of trouble.
