Ohio man killed in pedestrian versus car accident on campus

Motorists who travel around universities and other schools have to be extra vigilant about watching for pedestrians. Failing to do so can lead to an accident that pits a car against a pedestrian. Those types of accidents are often serious. In some cases, the pedestrian might die as a result of the accident. An Ohio car accident near Ohio State University is a stark reminder that drivers must watch for pedestrians, even when there isn't a crosswalk in the area.

The accident happened in an area of the University District that doesn't have traffic signals or crosswalk. A 24-year-old man tried to cross Summit Street shortly after midnight. He was in between two intersections for 18th Avenue when he was struck by a car heading southbound.

After being hit by the car, the man was taken to Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center. He died at the hospital from injuries suffered in the crash. The driver of the vehicle wasn't injured in the crash. The investigation is ongoing, but the driver hasn't received any citations for the fatal accident.

For a pedestrian, being struck by a vehicle is a horrible experience that can lead to considerable medical care. When the pedestrian dies in the accident, the family members are left to pick up the pieces. In both cases, expenses related to the accident are likely to add up quickly. One way that some people might choose to minimize the impact of those expenses is to seek compensation from the driver for damages related to the accident. Understanding the applicable Ohio laws might make the process a little less confusing.
