A car accident which happened in Cumberland County has killed two people and left one other with serious injuries. The accident involved several vehicles including a car, pickup truck and three motorcycles. This was a serious accident, but the policeman explains that the accident could have actually been much worse under other circumstances.
The crash happened at about 2:00 PM along Route 347. The state police which attended the scene explained that the Dodge Ram was traveling on the southbound carriageway and was unable to negotiate a corner. This caused the vehicle to cross over into the other lane on the other side of the road. At this point the driver hit two motorcycles before stopping close to the guardrail.
The first motorcycle rider was a 53 year old man. He was transported to a large hospital by helicopter. He was said to have life threatening serious injuries which required treatment. The passenger of this motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene before any medical care could be provided. The driver remains in a critical condition at the hospital and is still receiving treatment.
The second motorcycle rider was struck by another oncoming vehicle. The 48 year old driver of this bike was also pronounced dead at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. The surviving victims were the primary concern of the rescue crews who ensured they were all safe and transferred to the nearest hospitals capable of treating its injuries.
The car carried on moving after striking the motorcycle. It was then hit in the back by another Honda motorcycle. The 57 year old rider of this motorcycle only experienced minor injuries. He was transported to hospital by ambulance and received treatment for his injuries. He was then released as he was said to be in a stable condition. New York and Staten island authorities have experienced similar situations.
This was a serious car accident which needed help from all the emergency services for the rescue. The source explains that this accident could have actually been much worse if more vehicles were involved in it.
