Alcohol a factor in crash, Ohio grandfather and grandchild killed

With the school season in full swing, families are spending more time together on the weekends. This means that they might take to the roadways to travel from one activity to another. Because of that, it is vital that all drivers stay aware at all times to lessen the likelihood of an accident occurring. Sadly, accidents do still happen. A recent accident in Mad River Township, Ohio, left a 6th grade student dead.

The fatal accident happened when a 2004 Ford Explorer slammed into the back of a 1999 Ford Taurus. That rear-end crash left a grandfather and his granddaughter both dead. The grandmother and a younger granddaughter survived the accident. The 10-year-old girl was airlifted to Dayton Children's. The grandmother, who was driving the Taurus, was taken to a hospital and later released.

The Mad River Township Fire Chief took the time to remind people that accidents do occur on Dayton-Springfield Road. He said there tend to be more accidents during the winter months, but that speed seems to be a cause of the accidents on the road when people are trying to hurry from Enon to Springfield.

The accident is still under investigation, but alcohol is considered a factor. There is no reason why grandparents and their grandchildren should be injured or killed while spending the day together. This family lost two loved ones in an accident that might have been prevented.

Anyone who has lost a loved one in a traffic accident knows how difficult the days following the accident can be. Family members who were hurt in an accident that claimed a loved one's life might have survivor's guilt. Plus, they have to deal with their own injuries on top of everything else. For some, seeking monetary compensation might be a way to seek closure from the accident while helping to reduce the financial impact of the accident.
