Driving safety ads show how dangerous it is to race on streets, yet people still act recklessly. An example is a recent Lancaster drag racing crash caught on camera.
Let’s explore the details of the Lancaster car accident incident with Ehline Law and our personal injury attorneys.
On September 27, 2022, a car crash occurred in a peaceful neighborhood in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with neighbors stating the driver was drag racing.
So far, no information about the accident is available except for neighbor accounts.
Freddy Rivera Jr, a resident of East Walnut Street, spoke to the media about the incident stating that it was clear that the driver was drag racing.
According to Rivera Jr, the accident occurred around 2 AM and was loud enough to wake him up from bed and investigate the noise.
Upon getting down from his residential block, he saw a vehicle smashed into a pole, suggesting it hit it head-on.
Rivera stated that the driver was probably going 70 MPH and was racing another driver in another car which had gone away when the wreck happened.
Other residents also woke up to investigate the incident and also believed that the driver was drag racing. The driver got out of the vehicle, but the passenger was trapped due to vehicle damage. Fortunately, both did not suffer any injuries from the crash.
Police came down to the accident scene and talked to the driver and the passenger but did not release any information. So far, the official version of the incident does not deem it as drag racing.
Joel Sims, at Lancaster Coworking, urged the media to search the security footage of the accident scene as that clearly suggested some form of racing during the night time.
Video of the incident made it to Facebook content, where people started commenting about the reckless driver.
Local law enforcement authorities are investigating the issue before they can release any additional information.
It is crucial to understand that before any law enforcement can pursue action, they require further information.
The same goes for when you go to retain legal services; an attorney will investigate before building a case for claims against an insurer or going to court. Investigations help authorities, attorneys, and victims explore more options.
