Like many other Ohio residents, you may enjoy riding a motorcycle. Not only is it often more economical, but it also provides you with a sense of freedom you cannot get from a passenger vehicle. The main problem is that it also puts you at risk for severe injuries that you may not suffer in a passenger vehicle if you are in a collision. Car accidents involving motorcycle riders rarely end well for the rider while vehicle occupants often walk away unscathed.
There is little that affects a parent more grievously than the loss of a child. Tragically, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of childhood deaths. Take, for instance, a recent fatal accident in Ohio that claimed the life of one little boy and left another in critical condition.
All fatal accidents are devastating. Perhaps many would agree, however, that few car accidents are as tragic as those that claim the life of a child. Sadly, just such a fatal crash occurred recently in Ohio.
Ohio traffic laws exist for a reason: to keep everyone on the roads safe. When a driver disobeys these laws, whether accidentally or through carelessness or selfish disregard, the risk of automobile accidents increases greatly, and sometimes, the resultant wrecks prove deadly. Just such a fatal collision occurred only recently on U.S. Route 62.
A car crash occurred in Ohio the day after Christmas, severely injuring all three individuals involved. A serious automobile accident is enough to ruin anyone's holiday, but further complicating matters -- should the injured victims choose to pursue a personal injury suit against the at-fault driver -- is the fact that all parties involved were from out of state. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, the wreck occurred when a man -- believed to be under the influence of alcohol -- drove his vehicle across the center line on State Route 43, striking an SUV traveling in the opposite direction.
A car accident due to inclement weather, faulty brakes or any of a number of other unforeseeable factors is distressing enough. It can be particularly upsetting, though, when automobile accidents are caused by another driver's carelessness or selfishness. For instance, speeding, drunk driving and texting behind the wheel are just a few examples of preventable factors that often lead to car accidents, which might otherwise have been avoidable.
Two individuals were injured recently in a head-on collision in Ohio. Sadly, this is the third in a series of wrong-way automobile accidents in the Cleveland area in just the last few months. Thankfully, no one was killed in this most recent crash, but others have not been so lucky.
From fender bender to head-on collision, a car accident is bound to ruin anyone's day. Understandably, no automobile accidents are as tragic as those as those that claim a life. Sadly, a fatal crash occurred on a recent Tuesday afternoon.
Each driver has a duty of care to protect the safety of everyone nearby when out on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes a breach in this duty occurs, and one person's negligent actions can place those nearby in harm's way. Car accidents that occur under similar circumstances can be devastating. A recent collision involving four vehicles in Ohio has claimed the lives of two individuals, and left numerous others with injuries.
At best, being involved in even a minor car crash is likely to ruin anyone's day. Few types of vehicle accidents, though, are as potentially catastrophic as those involving trucks. Just such a recent Ohio crash on U.S. Route 30 left one man dead.
