Car accidents bring communities together for grieving families

One wrong decision or lapse in judgment behind the wheel can change the course of an Ohio family forever. Distracted, impaired and drowsy drivers may not mean to endanger the lives of everyone around them, but they do. Several serious or even deadly car accidents occur for these reasons. When they do, the deceased victims' communities tend to rally around the surviving family members.

Two such families need the support of their community after each lost a loved one in a recent crash. Both individuals, one age 34 and the other age 28, were thrown from their vehicle after a second vehicle reportedly ran through a stop sign and slammed into their vehicle. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at around 2:30 a.m.

Police suspect the driver who ran the stop sign was impaired at the time of the accident. One of the victims did not leave the scene alive while the other lived for another nine hours before dying at a hospital in the area. The community reached out to the families of the victims offering whatever support they could provide. While the families grieve, the investigation into the accident continues as there is some discrepancy regarding who was actually driving the second vehicle.

In the meantime, the families could exercise their right to file wrongful death claims against the party or parties believed responsible for the crash. Doing so may require authorities to sort out whether another person drove the vehicle that slammed into the first vehicle. As often happens in other car accidents, it may also be necessary to conduct an independent investigation as well, which would need to be conducted as quickly as possible in order to preserve evidence.
