December 18 Central Pennsylvania Crash
Two people died and dozens suffered injuries in a 60-vehicle crash on December 18, 2019 when snow squalls suddenly swept across I-80. PennDOT estimated that visibility was eight to ten feet during the snow squalls. In addition to reducing visibility to a dangerous level, the snow quickly coated the highway, creating slippery conditions. One meteorologist suggested that the snow may have melted on the road surface and refroze into a sheet of ice.
As the chain-reaction crash continued to occur, people in smaller vehicles took cover in the trees lining the highway to avoid the impact of any oncoming semis. First responders transported dozens of people to area hospitals including Evangelical Hospital and Geisinger Medical Center.

“Our firm fought for many victims of two of the worst I-80 Pennsylvania truck and bus crashes in history. After a seven-week trial in 2016, we recovered $19 million+ for victims of a massive Greyhound bus crash near Williamsport in Central PA. We also recovered $3.5 million for one of our several clients injured in a 50-vehicle pileup of mostly trucks on I-80. This crash occurred during a bad snowstorm. Because we were hired so soon after these crashes, we were able to lock down key evidence including witness statements, vehicle inspections, and more. This early evidence, coupled with our team of lawyers fighting like hell for each of our clients, are the main reasons we were so successful in helping our clients who were injured or killed in these tragic crashes.” – Partner Jon Ostroff
