An accident involving three vehicles left numerous people with injuries and the police scrambling to find out what exactly went on in the build-up to this crazy crash. The accident happened at an intersection in Penn Hills, where three vehicles came together in a scary wreck. There are photos of the vehicles in the source article linked at the bottom of this post, and the damage to each one of them is extensive.
The police are investigating the crash, but at the moment there aren’t many details. What we do know is that multiple people had to be taken to local hospitals for the injuries they suffered, though the extent of those injuries was not disclosed.
One of the things to take away from this story is that multi-vehicle accidents like this can be very complicated to figure out in the aftermath. Liability is often shared, and the interaction between insurance companies and policies can lead to some frustrating moments. However, you shouldn’t get discouraged. There are ways to get through these difficult times.
Another lesson from this story is the danger of intersections. This is where most accidents occur. There are so many things happening at an intersection: light signals, street signs, bicyclists, pedestrians, vehicles of all shapes and sizes, turns, and high speeds all come together at these intersections. The result can be catastrophic when drivers are reckless or negligent.
