Earlier this week in Springettsbury Township, Pennsylvania, a chain-reaction accident took the life of one Maryland man and injured several others. According to one local news report, the accident occurred around 11:45 in the morning.
Evidently, there was a line of three cars waiting to get off a highway exit ramp when a vehicle approaching from the rear failed to stop or slow down. That vehicle crashed into the rear-most car in the line, which sent it into the cars in front of it. In all, the accident involved four vehicles.
The driver of the first vehicle to be rear-ended was an 86-year-old man from Parkton, Maryland. He was taken to the nearest hospital but was shortly after pronounced dead. His wife and two others involved in the accident were also taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The extent of their injuries is not currently known.
