Several suffer critical injuries in multi-vehicle car accident

Heavy summer traffic means delays from construction and other obstacles. When drivers are not fully attentive of the conditions ahead, a serious car accident can result. Recently, several Ohio travelers were caught up in two separate wrecks that sent several victims to area hospitals.

According to the authorities, the first wreck was caused when a tractor trailer driver purportedly slammed into the rear of a smaller vehicle that was stopped ahead of it. The truck then proceeded to strike another vehicle. This led to other vehicles striking those in front of them in a chain reaction wreck that involved nine automobiles. This collision sent seven victims to area medical centers with critical injuries.

This first wreck was purportedly the catalyst for the second collision that occurred when a woman driving a smaller SUV ran into the rear of the semi traveling in front of her. Her car was partially wedged under the trailer. The driver and a minor in the rear seat were transported for care of their critical injuries.Two other passengers were not severely hurt.

Ohio State Police stated that the majority of these wrecks are caused by distracted or inattentive drivers. The investigation was ongoing, and no charges had been filed at the time of the report. The victims who suffered serious injuries from this multiple vehicle car accident will likely have considerable monetary burdens. These financial damages stem from medical bills, lost wages and associated costs. Once the investigation is closed, the victims may elect to file personal injury civil suits against those parties deemed responsible for causing this horrific wreck in order to seek compensation that may ease the strain created by these unwarranted monetary expenses.
