Wrong-way accidents can cause life-threatening injuries

No one wants to be traveling a roadway and suddenly see headlights coming from the wrong direction. Wrong-way accidents are not an uncommon occurrence, and they often lead to head-on collisions. Unfortunately, this type of crash can also result in those involved suffering serious injuries.

It was recently reported that a multi-vehicle crash in Ohio caused harm to several people. The incident occurred on Interstate 74 at approximately 2:30 a.m. Apparently, a 46-year-old man was driving east in the westbound lanes of the road and crashed into a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old man. The vehicle that was hit was also carrying two adult passengers and two children. The wrong-way vehicle eventually came to a stop but was hit by at least two more vehicles.

The driver of the vehicle that was hit and a 5-year-old child in that vehicle both suffered life-threatening injuries. Two other adults in that vehicle were also injured as was a driver of another vehicle involved. The wrong-way driver suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening. The reports indicated that alcohol was a suspected factor in the crash, but the incident was still under investigation.

Wrong-way accidents are some travelers' nightmare, and for these individuals, it became a reality. Suffering serious injuries in a crash can be life-changing, and these parties may have reason to seek compensation for resulting damages from the driver considered at fault. Gaining information on filing personal injury claims in Ohio may be a wise step for these affected individuals to take.
