The other day, a car crashed into a Center City church. At around 2:30 a.m. last Sunday, the Church of the Holy Trinity suffered minor damage to the steps in front of their building. The driver of the vehicle stayed on scene, but the passenger fled on foot.

The driver told police that the passengers jerked the steering wheel and caused the crash.

We bring you this story to highlight just how dangerous it can be in and around the roadways each day. While we do everything we can to be safe when we go out, we cannot control the actions of other drivers, or in this case, their passengers. Luckily, this accident happened early in the morning and nobody was harmed.

But do you know where to turn if you are injured in a vehicle accident?

The Reality

According to the latest report for Pennsylvania, drivers in this state face risks every day. For 2017:

  • There were 128,188 accidents
  • 80,612 people were injured
  • 1,137 people were killed
  • 1 out of every 44 people was involved in a traffic accident
  • 1 out of every 159 people was injured in a traffic accident

While most traffic accidents result in only property damage or minor injuries, some cause major injuries that require extensive medical care.

It is not uncommon for someone to suffer from paralysis due to a spinal cord injury or from long-term disability due to a traumatic brain injury.

Did you know that the first-year costs for a spinal cord injury can reach over $1 million?

How They Happen

  • 31,051 speeding-related
  • 15,614 distracted driver
  • 14,004 improper turning
  • 9,143 drunk driver

All of those accidents happen due to negligent driver behavior and can cause serious harm to passengers in other vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Like the story above shows us, there is no way to be prepared for some incidents that happen on the road.
