Man Killed After Suspected Drunk Driver Crashes Into His Home

On October 8, 2021, the Tribune-Democrat reported that 23-year-old Carly Ann Croyle was arrested after crashing into a home on Ragers Hill Road. Croyle was reported to have had a .14% blood alcohol level when tested at the Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center following the crash. The state's legal limit is .08%. She had consumed multiple drinks at the Johnstown Inn located at 1310 Frankstown Rd, Johnstown, PA 15902. 

The victim was sleeping in his chair inside his home when Croyle crashed a borrowed Dodge Ram pickup into the house. It was reported that he died instantly from the force as he was pushed through a wall. The victim's wife was sleeping in another room during the fatal crash. 

Croyle suffered minor injuries to her knee and face and was treated at the hospital. She is facing charges of homicide by vehicle while DUI, involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol, and reckless driving.

Can I Sue For Being Hit By A Drunk Driver?

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea proudly represents victims of drunk driving accidents along with their families, helping them recover the compensation they rightfully deserve. Brian has recently shared some information on the legal rights of these victims and families in the state of Pennsylvania.

"It is important for drunk driver crash victims injured by drunk drivers or family members of drunk drivers' killed victims to know their legal rights. Across all states, victims that have been injured by drunk drivers have the right to file a civil lawsuit against the drunk driver."

"However, many states allow victims to sue the vendor who provided the driver with alcohol before the crash. In states with third-party liability dram shop laws, such as Pennsylvania, victims can go after the vendor if they can prove one of two instances occurred. The first suggests that the vendor continued to serve alcohol to someone after it was apparent that they were intoxicated. The second would involve the vendor serving a minor under the age of 21."

"Victims and their families are encouraged to fully explore their legal rights to a civil lawsuit under the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney as financial compensation may be available."
