Pennsylvania State Police report on Thanksgiving crashes

Dangerous and drunk driving can kill, which is why it's so important for people to avoid driving while intoxicated or distracted. Sadly, many people were hurt or killed over the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police, 247 people were hurt, and eight people were killed during crashes that happened throughout the 2019 holiday driving period from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1.

The police investigated 1,116 crashes, and 6.5% were reported to be related to alcohol. While the total number of crashes might not seem as high as you would expect, you should know that 14,028 speeding tickets were written. Another 1,366 tickets were written for people failing to wear their seat belts. Finally, 729 people were arrested for driving while intoxicated, a 14% increase from 2018.

If you were involved in a crash over the holiday weekend, then you know all too well how important it is for people to pay better attention on the roads and to do their best to avoid causing crashes. A single collision, even at lower speeds, can result in many people getting hurt or killed. Even a single-vehicle crash could result in injuries or the deaths of several people.

What do you do if you've been hurt as a result of another driver's negligence?

Whether it's being distracted or drunk, there's no reason for a driver to be on the roads if they're not capable of following the traffic laws. You can speak up and work with your attorney to hold them responsible for the injuries or deaths that they've caused as a result of their actions.
