While people were trying to get home from their jobs during their daily commute in Columbus, a terrible truck accident happened that ended in a fatality. On Interstate 270, there was a five-car crash that included two pickups, two cars and a commercial vehicle. The truck accident happened on the southbound side of I-270 on the east end of Columbus.
Investigators are unsure of what caused the truck accident, but the investigation is still ongoing. It is reported that at least one of the vehicles involved in the accident flipped over, landing on its roof. There was unfortunately one fatality as a result of this truck accident, a woman who was in one of the cars. She allegedly rear ended one of the other vehicles and was subsequently rear ended herself by a pickup.
Of the other people involved in the crash, one man was taken to Mt. Carmel Hospital as a precautionary measure, while four others were reportedly shaken up by the incident but were unharmed. Despite the fact that the cause of the truck accident remains unclear, it is implied that the family of the woman who was killed is suffering from a heartbreaking loss. They may want to consider legal representation, as they may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering caused from their loss.
By retaining a qualified personal injury lawyer, the family of the decedent in this instance may be able to receive money to help them with the trials that are certain to follow her death. They, like anyone else that has been the victim of a truck accident may be entitled to such recompense. The only way to know for sure is to take the time and to find a solid, experienced attorney that can inform them of their rights.
