The multi-vehicle accident happened around Washington and Mt. Lebanon Boulevard. Police had to close the road for several hours so they could investigate the scene.
The driver of the vehicle that caused the accident sustained back injuries and was taken to UPMC Presbyterian. The driver and passenger that were in the vehicle that was sideswiped suffered from back and leg injuries and were taken to UPMC Mercy. The driver who was involved in the head-on collision was trapped inside his vehicle and had to be removed by firefighters. He suffered serious injuries and was taken to Allegheny General Hospital. The driver of the fourth vehicle that was hit did not sustain any injuries.
An investigation is underway to determine if charges need to be filed.
Sharp bends and curves can be dangerous. It is important for drivers to travel with caution around them. The key to traveling safely around these curves is to slow down. About a week prior, a vehicle lost control around a bend and crossed over the double yellow lines in West Mifflin. That accident resulted in one death.

Those injured in the accident may file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver’s car insurance. Filing a claim will help the individuals recover damages sustained in the accident. These damages may include, out of pocket medical expenses, wage loss and pain and suffering.
