The holidays typically bring families together, and many families arrive at their destinations by car. Unfortunately, many car accidents also happen during the holiday season. This year was no exception.
On the busiest traveling day of the year, a fatal car crash took the life of a child and seriously injured 3 other people in Bucks County on Thanksgiving eve.
A Ford Mustang rear-ended and crashed into a Honda in Doylestown, PA. Several passengers were trapped inside one of the cars and had to be extracted from the car. The horrific crash killed the 7-year-old girl in the Honda.
The driver of the Mustang was reported to be speeding. The crash caused the Honda to veer off onto the grass along the highway and flipped over several times before coming to rest.
From a legal standpoint, the driver who caused the accident may be negligent for speeding and can be held liable for the injuries and pain and suffering sustained by the injured victims, including the family of the 7-year-old girl.
Though details of the investigation have not been released, if the brakes of the Mustang were defective, which prevented the driver to stop the car, there may also be a defective products case, also known as a products liability case, against the manufacturer of the car or brakes.
