Two accidents at the same Butler Co. intersection only days apart

The same intersection along a strip of Route 8 in southern Butler County was the site of two significant auto accidents over the past week.  The site of these crashes was near the exit of the Cogo's parking lot in Middlesex Township.

Fatal Accident on Eberhart Road and Rt. 68

Today, Monday, August 18th, the Butler community was saddened to hear that Sylvia Kuhn, 67, of Butler, lost her life in a tragic automobile accident at the intersection of Eberhart Road when an eastbound vehicle struck her vehicle on the driver's side.  The eastbound vehicle was being operated by Danielle Zeigler, 19, also of Butler.  Zeigler was taken to Butler Memorial Hospital after the accident and treated for minor injuries.  Additional facts surrounding this crash are not known at this time as police are still investigating.  Area residents claim that this scene is the location of many accidents and that speed and the size of the intersection contribute to many of them.  Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Sylvia Kuhn as they cope with this unspeakable tragedy.

Construction Zone Accident in Butler County.

We've all been there.  Cruising along on the Interstate when the dreaded "Right Lane Closed - 1500 feet" sign appears.  Knowing that the inevitable merge is imminent, you keep your speed and try to find exactly what car or truck you will sneak in front of right before the merge point.  1000 feet.... 500 feet.... The merge point is here; you've picked your spot and sneak in right before the orange barrels begin to block the right lane.

Everyone of us who experienced the joy of turning 16, passing the driving test and finally feeling the freedom of the open road, also remembers the preaching words of wisdom from parents reminding us to keep two hands on the wheel, keep your eyes on the road and keep your vehicle in the proper lane of travel.
