Fatal Pickaway County Crash Caused By Medical Condition

A Fayette County deputy clung to life for more than a week after his crash on April 8, but he succumbed to severe injuries yesterday at an Ohio hospital.

The crash occurred on Interstate 22 in Pickaway County, when the deputy's car left the road and hit a culvert and utility pole before rolling over. The fatal car accident was caused when a medical condition flared up, impairing the man.

The deceased had worked in law enforcement for more than 45 years.

This tragic interstate accident reminds us how medical conditions can become especially deadly when we're driving motor vehicles. A stroke, heart attack, or even a diabetic attack can be a danger to the driver, passengers and other motorists/pedestrians.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) requires health examinations for commercial truck drivers, but no requirement exists for noncommercial motorists. It's up to each individual driver to determine whether he or she is safe behind the wheel. If a motorist risks others' safety by driving with a serious medical condition, then the driver is liable for any resulting injuries or wrongful deaths.
