Erie Truck Accident Lawyer : Reward Offered in I-90 Hit & Run Fatality

August 26, 2010, ERIE, PA -- The Erie County District Attorney and the Erie County Neighborhood Watch Council have offered a $500 reward for information that leads police to the driver of either truck involved in a hit and run fatal Erie truck accident on I-90 in North East Township, Pennsylvania last Friday.

As previously relayed here in our Erie commercial truck accident blog (See blog entries 1 , 2 & 3 ), Xiaoxia Zhang, 30, of Chicago was traveling east on I-90 with her family in their Volkswagen Passat station wagon. Her husband was driving and she and their two children were in the back seat.

A large blue truck or tractor trailer reportedly attempted to pass them on the left near mile mark 40 on I-90 in North East, Pennsylvania. The truck struck the Passat in the rear, spinning it out of control and causing Ms. Zhang to be ejected.

Another large truck reportedly struck Ms. Zhang as she lay on the highway. Reportedly, she was killed instantly.

Both drivers fled the scene.

Ms. Zhang's husband and two children reportedly suffered minor injuries.

The I-90 Pennsylvania tractor trailer accident happened on August 20, 2010 at approximately 12:45 a.m.

Witnesses with information about the Pennsylvania truck accident or either truck involved, including a blue tractor trailer or other large blue truck with front end damage, should contact police at (814)898-1641 or contact the Erie County District Attorney at or at 1-800-4-PA-TIPS.
