Truck Hits House in Pennsylvania
A tractor-trailer clipped a utility pole, veered across Route 30 and hit a house in Paradise Township, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, February 15. The truck driver was found dead in the cab of his truck.
According to witnesses and Lancaster County law enforcement, the driver may have suffered a heart attack prior to crashing into the house. He may have been slumped over his wheel before crashing through a concrete wall and transformer, which exploded. The front of the truck was heavily damaged.
A woman who was inside the house was not injured.
Although authorities are waiting on test results to see if the driver was killed in the truck accident or if he died from a medical condition, the stretch of Route 30 where the incident occurred is notorious. There have been several serious accidents over the years. The posted speed limit is 35 mph, but residents in the area say everyone drives faster than that.
Whatever the cause of this truck accident, thousands of people are seriously injured or killed every year in tractor-trailer wrecks. The sheer size makes the speed of the vehicle almost irrelevant in many cases. The woman whose house was damaged in Pennsylvania was lucky.
