Post-accident advice

Being involved in a car accident is one of the last things a person in Ohio wants to think about when they get in their vehicle. However, the reality of today's world is that crashes can and do happen at any time. This is due, at least in part, to the fact that many negligent people fail to act in ways that are prudent and instead make choices that put innocent people at risk. Knowing this, it is important to have a plan in place for what to do should a wreck occur.

2 dead in head-on Ohio collision

Citizens of Delphos, Ohio witnessed smoke billowing from beneath an overpass last Tuesday afternoon. The smoke was from a fire resulting from a two-vehicle head-on collision on U.S. Highway 30 between a pickup and a semi-truck. The flames reached up to the level of the overpass near the Fifth Street exit where the two vehicles came to rest following the crash. 

Potentially impaired driver kills toddler and three adults

Ohio residents may understandably feel angry and upset when they hear reports of a drunk or drugged driver injuring or killing innocent people. When such events include the death of babies or young children, the angst can be even worse. Unfortunately, this is exactly what many people in Ashtabula have had to experience and hear about after a recent crash on a Friday night in their town.

Preschooler dies; second child injured in crash

People in Ohio are oftenn saddened when they hear reports of people being killed in car accidents. When those persons who died are young children, however, the sadness can be even deeper and the whole experience may feel more tragic. For those people who lose their precious children in senseless motor vehicle accidents, it can be a daily challenge to learn how to go on with their own lives.

Drugged, drunk trucker kills one

When accepting a driver's license, a person in Ohio should be keenly aware of the responsibility that they hold while simultaneously enjoying the privilege of driving. This responsibility can be even greater when the person chooses to drive for a living and operate a large, commercial vehicle. Even when it comes to determining intoxication by alcohol, commercial drivers are held to a different standard where impairment is said to be evident with a blood alcohol content of 0.04 percent compared to 0.08 percent for other drivers.

Two teens injured in rollover accident

People in Ohio know that at some point, teenagers need to learn how to drive. However, it is reasonable to be concerned about handing over the keys to a young person who may be impetuous and too immature to fully grasp their own mortality and the need to operate a vehicle safely. Too many accidents have involved teenage drivers, at least some of which may have been preventable by safer driving practices.

Distracted driving not always manual

For several years now, residents in Ohio have heard people warn of the dangers of distracted driving. To a large degreee, the emphasis here has been on texting or the handheld use of a phone to make and answer calls while actively driving. However, these are far from the only forms of distraction out there. In fact, research shows that some of the technological advances many consumers believe increase their safety against distracted driving remain highly distracting and therefore highly dangerous.

Criminal sentence set for drunk and high driver

Residents in Ohio who are worried about the reckless behavior of others and how it may put them and their families in jeopardy have good reason for their concerns. Despite widespread public awareness and increasingly tough laws, too many people continue to make negligent choices such as driving when they are drunk or under the influence of drugs. This leaves families mourning losses they should never have to endure.

Hamilton County traffic fatalities on the rise

If you are like most people in Ohio, you have passed your fair share of post-accident scenes on a local road or highway. Sights of crumpled vehicles or vehicle parts may be all that is left by the time you go by but the tragedy that was involved could be far worse than what those automotive pieces might make you think at first glance. The sad reality is that many people die in vehicle accidents that should not ever happen due to the negligent actions of others. 

Speeding teen driver kills one, injures two

Ohio residents know that vehicle accidents can be caused by drivers of any age for a variety of reasons. Elderly drivers, for example, may have difficulties seeing or responding quickly. Young drivers may be more apt to drive fast or otherwise dangerously in part due to their youth that may make them feel invincible and immortal. Unfortunately even though this may be understandable, it is nonetheless a serious problem that continues to leave too many innocent people injured or even dead.
