Erie Car Crash Lawyer : 4 Hurt in Station Road Crash

September 3, 2010, Harborcreek, PA -- Four people were reportedly hurt in a crash on Station Road in Harborcreek at about 4:24 pm yesterday. The Erie County car accident reportedly involved two vehicles and occurred in the 9000 block of Station Road in Harborcreek Township.

A Plymouth PT Cruiser was westbound on Station road and stopped waiting to make a left turn when it was rear-ended by a Chevy Malibu also westbound on Station Road. The Malibu spun out of control after the collision and struck a nearby tree.

By report, the occupants of the PT Cruiser were not injured. However, two adults and two children in the Malibu had to be rescued from the Malibu by emergency crews and were transported to Hamot Hospital in Erie for injuries that may not be life threatening.

So soon after a crash it is not unusual that the initial version of the crash or the injuries may be less than complete or even sometimes inaccurate. However, the initial reports would suggest that the driver of the Malibu is at-fault in the accident and that the only people injured in the accident were the occupants of the Malibu.

It is also reasonable to infer that the children and adults in the Malibu may have been in the same family.

Under circumstances like this, some people assume that the injured children and adult passenger have no remedy available to them for their injuries because the at-fault driver was a spouse or parent. However, the truth is that the careless driver's insurance company is legally required to indemnify the driver from liability for harm. So, if the children or spouse were injured then they can recover from the insurance that is available to indemnify their spouse or parent for the careless driving that caused the Erie car accident.
