One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. This is even more true when it comes to operating a motor vehicle. These days in Ohio, it seems that car accidents are almost inevitable. By staying focused behind the wheel and driving defensively, drivers can reduce their odds of being involved in an accident. However, the actions of other drivers are completely unpredictable.
Violent head-on crash
Recently in Columbus, one driver was killed after being involved in a violent head-on collision. The accident happened during the afternoon near the intersection of Maize Road and Morse Road, just east of Interstate 71. According to accident reports, the driver of a Honda was headed west on Morse Road when they veered into the eastbound lanes at the intersection and slammed head-on into an eastbound Kia.
Authorities said the driver of the Kia was rushed to an area medical center with life-threatening injuries where, tragically, they died a short time later. The driver of the Honda was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, reports said. The accident is currently being investigated by the Columbus Police Department’s Accident Investigation Unit.
Being injured or losing a loved one in an unfortunate accident is something that no person can truly prepare for. Those in Ohio who suffer injuries or loss in car accidents caused by the negligence of another party can speak to a lawyer about their options for legal recourse. Damages from a successful lawsuit could help ease the pain and suffering of victims and families.
