Pennsylvania car accidents are all too common these days. Less common, however, are accidents involving a more antiquated form of transportation: the horse-and-buggy.

When Pennsylvania residents find themselves involved in car accidents, they sometimes find that the collision was nothing more serious than a minor fender bender. Unfortunately, this is not often the case and individuals sometimes suffer serious injuries as a result of being involved in car accidents. A recent car accident resulted in two individuals being sent to the hospital.

However, when car accidents are caused by the willing recklessness of another individual, the accident often adds insult to injury.
Over the course of their lives, many drivers in Pennsylvania find themselves speeding at one point for one reason or another.
