A heartbreaking auto accident took place on December 24, 2016 when a pickup truck struck a tree on Route 222 in Upper Macungie Township, near Allentown. The driver, William Pilus Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene of the Allentown car accident. Two passengers, Darlene Gordon and a 15-year-old boy, were transported to Lehigh Valley Hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, no one was wearing a seat belt. Our attorneys represent far too many injured passengers who have not worn their seat belt. Please wear your seat belt when traveling – it will help prevent so many personal injury and wrongful death cases. A message from your friends at the Trapani Law Firm.
