Early Thursday morning, around 3:30 a.m., an apparent wrong-way crash occurred on Route 28 near the Heinz Plant. One of the victims, a 24-year-old female from Coraopolis, was traveling outbound in the inbound lanes on Route 28, when she collided with another vehicle head-on. The victim in that vehicle was a 24-year-old female from Indiana, Pennsylvania. Both young women died due to the extent of their injuries.
It is not certain as to why the young woman was travelling in the wrong direction along Route 28. Inbound lanes were closed for nearly three hours after the fatal accident.
An investigation is ongoing.

The family of the victim may file a civil wrongful death claim.
Filing a claim after losing a loved one will never fill the void left by a loved one’s passing away. It is not a matter of profiting for the family left behind, but rather recovering. The recovery of damages can alleviate the unexpected funeral costs and expenses accrued when a loved one passes.
