On Tuesday afternoon, a motor vehicle accident claimed the life of one driver and injured two others. Around 2 pm, the crash occurred when a Ford Explorer swerved into oncoming traffic and collided with a Nissan Sentra. The crash took place in the intersection of North 2nd Street and Franklin Avenue in Chester, Pennsylvania. The driver of the Nissan succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene of the accident while the two occupants of the Explorer were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.
Intersections between busy roads tend to be common places for a motor vehicle accident to take place, and may result in side-impact collisions or head-on crashes, which are both common and extremely serious types of accidents. Nearly 9,000 fatalities originate from side-impact collisions each year, and may cause minor to catastrophic injuries for occupants of both vehicles. Even if a victim survives a crash like this, they may experience physical and emotional trauma and a loss of income.
