Woman and man killed in 2-car collision

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers reported that a husband and wife were killed on Oct. 17 when their car was struck by another vehicle. The accident occurred around 12:35 p.m. in Crawford County at the intersection of Brockensword Road and Route 4. The couple that died in the collision were from Reynoldsburg.

The 53-year-old female driver was driving with her 56-year-old husband as her passenger in her 2011 Chevy Malibu on Route 4. When she entered the intersection with Brockensword Road, a 1996 Buick Regal being driven by an 18-year-old man allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign, striking her car.

Both the woman and her husband were pronounced dead at the scene by responding personnel. The 18-year-old man and three passengers in his car were all seriously injured as well. The 18-year-old and two passengers were transported by ambulance to Bucyrus Community Hospital, while a fourth person in the Buick, a 21-year-old female, was taken by life-flight to St. Vincent's Hospital in Toledo for treatment. Police continue to investigate the cause of the accident.

When people die in a fatal accident that is caused by negligent driving, their families may be able to recover damages by filing a wrongful death claim. Families might recover lost expected future financial support, any incurred medical expenses, funeral costs and bereavement expenses. In certain egregious cases, people may also be awarded punitive damages in addition to compensation for pecuniary losses. Families of victims wrongfully killed in automobile accidents may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney regarding the facts of their particular case in order to determine the claims and damages available to them.
