Winter weather has arrived in Pennsylvania, and it is wreaking havoc on the roadways.

Mechanical problems cause personal injury crash

Properly maintaining a vehicle is an important responsibility that every driver carries. In most cases, the vehicle will warn a driver that it needs mechanical attention, such as when the "check engine" light comes on, oil begins to leak or a strange sound comes from under the hood. For a driver who does not pay attention to those signs, regular checkups with a qualified mechanic are essential to keeping the vehicle in top working order, which can prevent catastrophes like the recent personal injury accident in Pennsylvania.
