Motorcycle, Tractor-Trailor Collision Results in Death

On June 3, 2023, an accident on Route 40 in Washington County, PA resulted in the death of a motorcycle rider. The crash occurred near Anderson Drive. The police reported that the motorcycle was headed east on Route 40 when it collided head-on with a tractor-trailer. Washington County Coroner, Tim Warco, is performing an autopsy while the Pennsylvania State Police are investigating the crash.  

In a motorcycle accident that results in a death, the investigation performed by the responding police department is critical. Most departments have specially trained officers that investigate accidents that result in death. The Pennsylvania State Police require that troopers undergo specific training for these types of investigations. 

In cases that involve motorcycles and tractor-trailers, there are additional items that need investigated. Was the motorcycle rider wearing a helmet? Was the rider in their lane? Was the tractor-tailer legally on the road? Was the truck driver keeping accurate logs and resting when required? These details will have an impact on who law enforcement determines is at fault. These facts may also determine who is civilly liable for the accident.  

Motorcycle accidents resulting in death are tragic cases. The suddenness of a wrongful death creates a void in a family, a workplace, and a community. Families for the deceased deserve diligence and attention from the attorney helping them with their case. They deserve someone who will work with law enforcement and seek evidence from whatever source to help build the strongest case possible.
