10-year-old Killed in Truck Accident on I-90 in Erie County, PA
Erie County, PA — May 22, 2023, a 10-year-old boy was killed due to a truck accident Monday afternoon along eastbound lanes of I-90.
Preliminary information provided by police officials says that the crash happened at approximately 2:40 p.m. in the area of the Girard exit.
It appears that a family from Canada was in an SUV that was going along I-90. The SUV and several other vehicles apparently came to a stop, police say. After they did so, however, a commercial truck apparently did not stop in time and crashed into the back of the line of vehicles.
As a result of the collision, a 10-year-old in the SUV sustained fatal injuries. Reports at this time do not specify if anyone else was hurt. Right now, the exact factors leading to the crash remain under investigation. No charges or citations have been reported pending those continuing investigations.
