SUV Crushed Under Truck in Upper Macungie Causing Fatal InjuriesThe driver of an SUV sustained fatal injuries after his vehicle slipped beneath a tractor trailer, and was crushed under the truck. Around 12:29 pm, on Sunday afternoon, a 68-year-old man from Norwood, Pennsylvania was traveling on Interstate 78 in Upper Macungie Township, Pennsylvania when he crashed into the back of a truck, and his SUV became pinned underneath it. After the passenger was extricated from the vehicle, the individual was brought to the Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest, and treated for injuries. The SUV driver succumbed to his fatal injuries at the scene of the truck accident.

When a small vehicle or even an SUV or large passenger vehicle slams into a much larger truck, the impact could cause occupants to sustain personal injuries or potential fatalities. Rear end collisions occur on a frequent basis, and may lead to a range of injuries for motorists and their passengers. Speeding and distracted driving are two reasons for a crash like this, and poor weather conditions may heighten the level of danger.
