On January 18, 2023, a coal truck rolled over after failing to navigate a turn on Route 219 in Richland Township, PA. There were no injuries as a result of the crash. However, the coal truck was full at the time of the accident, resulting in coal being spilled on the roadway. The truck crash caused the Scalp Avenue Exit to be closed for two hours.
Bononi and Company has handled personal injury cases for more than 35 years. When a full coal truck overturns, it is a miracle when there are no injuries. When incidents like this happen, we our reminded of basic driving principles. If you are driving behind a large truck, keep a safe distance away from the truck. Also, do not try and pass large trucks that are navigating turns. A full truck load can cause the driver of the truck to lose control. Once that happens, an accident can be devastating.
