September 21, 2011, ERIE, PA — A Pennsylvania car accident on Cobham Park Road in Glade Township, Warren County has left two people seriously injured and in an Erie hospital. The one car accident happened last night near 10:20 p.m. when a teen driver with four teen passengers lost control on the wet road.
Police say that Jarrett M. Woodward, 19, of Warren may be charged in the Warren County car crash. According to the Erie Times News story of the accident, Mr. Woodward was southbound on Cobham Park Road and traveling too fast for conditions when his Ford Explorer dropped off the left shoulder of the road. The SUV then rolled on its passenger side, dropped off a steep embankment and turned on its roof, coming to rest in a stream.
Mr. Woodward was not injured in the Warren County accident but all four passengers were initially taken to Warren General Hospital and two of them have since been transported to UPMC-Hamot and are listed in serious condition.*
Our hopes are with the injured passengers and their families for quick and complete recoveries.
We know that passengers injured in one-car accidents in Pennsylvania are frequently reluctant to speak with lawyers soon after an accident. Often, the passengers know the driver well and feel that the insurance company will be fair with them or perhaps they worry about getting the driver in trouble. Unfortunately, these circumstances can often cause trouble down the road, particularly if passengers try to protect the driver. Often, a consult with an experienced Pennsylvania car accident lawyer can mean the difference between complete and fair resolutions and years of unnecessary litigation.
