Passenger dies in single vehicle crash

A 20-year-old man from Amanda, Ohio, died in a late afternoon single vehicle crash. He was riding in a car driven by a male friend. The driver apparently suffered a loss of control over his car, a Ford Thunderbird, which was rounding a curve in close proximity to the 6500 block of Clearport Road in Madison County.

The accident took place at 5:15 p.m. and the passenger suffered critical injuries when the vehicle rammed into two trees. He was rushed by air to Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University where medical personnel did everything that they could to try to save his life, only to have him die the following day.

Police launched a detailed investigation of the crash, and have not indicated what they suspect may have caused the accident. In many Ohio car accidents, abuse of alcohol or drugs, driving at excessive speed, driving while fatigued, or driving while distracted by texting or engaging in cell phone use behind the wheel have led to tragic deaths and serious injuries.

The man who died had a steady girlfriend and many friends who spoke fondly of him and expressed sorrow at his tragic death. One friend called him a good-hearted guy with a kind soul. A couple also fondly recalled how the deceased had often volunteered to help watch their children and how children loved him. Other people who knew him characterized him as always helpful to others.

This is a common story when a young life is abruptly cut short by a senseless accident. Friends and family are confronted with the stark reality of all the potential, all the good times and achievements that are forever lost, often solely because a careless driver ignored the possible consequences of their actions. While no amount of money can ever bring back a lost precious loved one, a lawsuit against those responsible for an accident seeking recovery for wrongful death or personal injuries can put the economic burden where it properly belongs and hopefully help to deter future similar tragedies.
