High Speed – A Major Factor In Crashes Involving Serious Injury & Death

Posted on 23 December 2014 by Monica Zech

I’ve started this page to add articles in which the danger of “speed” plays a major role in a collision involving death and injury on our roadways.

I start with a collision just a couple of days before Christmas that will impact a large number of families:

Four Teens Die in Fiery Head-on Pa. Crash

State troopers in Carbon County said Saturday afternoon that the four were in a sedan heading west on Dairy Road in Lower Towamensing Township that collided with an eastbound car shortly before 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Police said both vehicles overturned and caught fire, while the car carrying the teens smashed into a tree and was ripped in half.

Police said the driver — listed by police as 17 but said by the coroner’s office to be 19 — was killed along with two 16-year-old boys and a 13-year-old girl. An 18-year-old female and a 22-year-old man were hospitalized.
