Two people lost their lives in an automobile accident on Saturday, November 24, in Bensalem Township, Pennsylvania. According to news outlets like The Times of Trenton and ABC 6, the nighttime collision involved three cars on Interstate 95.
Pennsylvania State Police reported that a 51-year-old man was killed after an Oldsmobile Bravada that was headed south lost control, catapulted over the median and struck the Dodge Grand Caravan that the 51-year-old was driving.
The Bravada, which was driven by a 19-year-old female, landed on top of the Dodge and was eventually hit by a Volvo S40 owned by a 49-year-old woman.
The 51-year-old and 19-year-old could not be saved by rescue teams and were pronounced dead at scene. There were three other passengers in the Dodge. They were removed from the vehicle and taken to local hospitals. Their injuries have not been disclosed to the public.
The 49-year-old woman was transported to St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne. Like the other survivors, how badly she was hurt has not been released.
Fire trucks, local and state police cruisers, a medical helicopter and emergency medical trucks were called to the scene. Although all lanes of I-95 were shut down for a short period of time, traffic resumed as normal early the next morning.
