Woman Killed in Truck Accident on Lincoln Drive in Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia, PA -- July 3, 2022, a woman was killed following an accident where her vehicle crashed with a tow truck on Lincoln Drive.

Investigators reported that the crash took place late Sunday at the intersection of Lincoln Drive and Emlen Street.

Authorities said that a woman was in a vehicle traveling eastbound on Emlen. At Lincoln, a southbound tow truck somehow t-boned the woman's vehicle.

Due to the collision, the woman sustained fatal injuries. The cause of the crash remains unclear with authorities saying only they think speed is a factor. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Tow Truck Accident on Lincoln Drive in Philadelphia

The images I can find of this crossing appear to show there is a traffic light as well as yield signs depending on how a vehicle is crossing this intersection. That may lead people to assume it's clear who was at fault, given this sort of thing usually requires someone to fail to yield. But authorities don't always dedicate the time or resources necessary to look into something this serious, and that's how crucial details slip through the cracks.

A while back, for example, someone approached us about a crash where, according to them, a truck ran a red light and hit their vehicle. The truck driver, however, claimed that our client ran the light. The investigating officer had all of these other priorities their department supervisor was throwing on them, so they essentially threw up their hands and sad, "Y'all figure it out." Well, it didn't take us long to track down security footage at a nearby business clearly showing the truck run the light. Only after that could steps be taken to get the victim the help they deserved.

I'm not at all trying to say that happened here. My point is simply that it isn't always so simple getting answers after a crash like this. That's why it's important victims and families know that experienced professionals are looking into things thoroughly to ensure the evidence can speak for itself. Maybe speed was a factor here, but who was speeding, why they were speeding, and whether or not there were any other, more serious factors involved may require independent efforts beyond simple police reports.
