2 injured, 1 killed in head-on Ohio car accident

Keeping control of a vehicle and ensuring you are driving in a safe manner are duties of all drivers on the roadways. When drivers fail to do either of those things, tragic accidents can occur. Recently, an accident on SR 132 in Batavia, Ohio, claimed the life of one woman who was a passenger in a car that was hit by a truck.

The accident happened when a 47-year-old man driving a Chevrolet truck drifted off the right side of the road. He tried to get back into his lane but ended up crossing into oncoming traffic. The truck was then struck by a Saturn car driven by a 19-year-old woman. Her passenger, a 24-year-old woman, was pronounced dead on the scene.

The teen driver was airlifted to a local hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the truck was also taken by helicopter to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

In this case, the two women weren't wearing seat belts, but the other driver was. The roadway was closed for six hours as authorities investigated the accident. Investigators noted that the cause of the crash isn't known. They did use this accident as an opportunity to remind drivers that melting snow and ice are making the roadways slippery.

The death of a loved one because of a car accident is horrible any time of the year, but often seems worse around the holidays. For the family of the woman who was killed, normal holiday cheer has probably been replaced with devastation.

Family members who lose a loved one in a car crash have the right to seek compensation for their loss. Monetary awards might help to cover the cost of the funeral and other related expenses.
