The severity of car crashes in Ohio can vary from a minor fender bender to a severe head-on collision. Car accidents can happen to anyone, but no one is ever prepared for an accident that results in the death of a child. Tragically, an 8-year-old boy was killed on Feb. 6 in a crash involving two vehicles.
The child was a passenger in a car driven by a 29-year-old woman. At the time of the crash, police patrol say that the boy was sitting in the middle of the car's rear seat. The car was traveling east at around 5:50 p.m. Monday evening when, according to statements, it was struck by a pickup truck. Current reports indicate that the pickup was traveling south when it failed to yield at an intersection and hit the left side of the car.
