A fatal accident occurred on Thursday afternoon on Route 222 near the Route 222 South/422 split. Around 4:20 pm, the fatal Route 222 crash took place in Spring Township, Pennsylvania, and caused victims to sustain multiple personal injuries. It is alleged that the driver of a pick-up truck failed to stop when traffic slowed down, which led to multiple collisions in which five separate cars were involved. A 78-year-old woman from Leesport, Pennsylvania succumbed to her fatal injuries while nine victims were hospitalized for their personal injuries in the Route 222 crash.
Rush hour is a dangerous time to travel because commuters and other motorists clog the road and may engage in reckless driving, speeding, or distracted driving in order to reach their destination in a minimal amount of time. These factors contribute to motor vehicle accidents, which, due to congestion on the highway, may lead to chain-reaction crashes, causing personal injuries or even fatalities for occupants of other cars.
