2-car collision causes death of 19-year-old passenger

An Ohio community is in mourning after the death of a 19-year-old resident of New Richmond in a two-car collision. The accident occurred on Oct. 18, when the Mazda 6 driven by the teen's mother was hit by a Camaro going westbound on Lindale Nicholsville Road attempting to drive onto State Route 749. In addition to his mother, there were two 9-year-old twin siblings in the car. The teen was pronounced dead while being airlifted to Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and his mother and siblings are still recovering at Children's Hospital.

Owners and patrons of nearby businesses witnessed the accident and stated that the intersection is a dangerous one and think something should be done to make it safer. They claim that accidents occur frequently. Accident statistics for that intersection reveal that there have been no fatalities in the last three years.

Witnesses believe that many drivers are distracted while driving and do not pay attention to signal lights or assume the other driver is going to stop. The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Ohio Highway Patrol. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts, and it has been determined that alcohol was not a factor. No skid marks were found at the accident scene.

The family has started a fund raising account to contribute to the payment of medical bills. If the driver of the Camaro is found to be responsible for the accident, an attorney may investigate the elements of the case and file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the victim's family and secure a settlement for financial harm caused by the accident.
