Not surprisingly, this time of year is a popular time to travel, which means the roads in and around Altoona, Pennsylvania, are going to be particularly crowded.
You are a safe driver, and you are proud of that. Unfortunately, no amount of defensive driving can protect you from those who do not take their responsibility behind the wheel as seriously as you do. Many Pennsylvania drivers may not even realize they are putting others in danger when they get behind the wheel while tired, but drowsy driving is a real and dangerous problem.
An accident on Interstate 99 near Altoona left two people dead and one other person critically injured. Two other people were also taken to the hospital in what police described as guarded condition, but they indicated that they thought the two women would survive the accident.
