2-vehicle car crash kills driver, injures 3 others

It often seems that teenage drivers are involved in a disproportionate share of serious accidents. Whether it is due to inexperience or recklessness, the news frequently carries stories of another car crash involving a young driver. One young Ohio driver was killed and three others suffered injuries in one of the most recent crashes.

According to officials, the early morning wreck was caused when the 17-year-old driver failed to obey a traffic sign at an intersection. As his vehicle entered into the roadway, it collided with another vehicle being driven by a 41-year-old woman. The force of the impact caused the second automobile to careen into a field. The first vehicle, a pickup truck, was overturned into a roadside ditch.

The wreck killed the teen driver. A passenger in the truck suffered injuries that were described as non-life threatening. The woman driver and a male passenger were also injured in the crash. The woman required transportation by helicopter, and her passenger was taken by ground to a nearby medical facility. Both victims are expected to survive.

Ohio police stated that they did not suspect that intoxicating substances were a cause of the wreck, though the investigation was ongoing. Though the nature of the surviving victims' injuries were not detailed, they may all require a long recovery. In the meantime, it is likely that they will incur considerable monetary damages in addition to their physical injuries. Each one, including the parents of the 16-year-old victim, may seek the input of a personal injury attorney in order to ascertain the possibilities of filing claims against the insurance carrier and the estate of the deceased driver or other responsible parties, in an effort to recoup their financial losses from this senseless and tragic car crash.
