Car struck by 4 vehicles, driver dies, child passenger lives

Driving on the Ohio roadways is sometimes dangerous during the winter months; however, there hasn't really been much snow to speak of yet this winter. This fact doesn't mean that accidents aren't happening. In fact a chain reaction of accidents recently claimed the life of one man on Interstate 71 North.

The accident started when a 44-year-old woman struck a 75-year-old man's vehicle. That man lost control of his vehicle after it was struck. He careened off the roadway and hit a guardrail. His vehicle was then struck by a vehicle driven by a 58-year-old man. After it was struck by that vehicle, it was hit again by a vehicle driven by a 32-year-old woman. The final crash of the chain reaction occurred when a 76-year-old man slammed into the 75-year-old man's vehicle and the 32-year-old woman's vehicle.

Sadly, the 75-year-old man who was driving the vehicle that was struck a total of four times was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident. The man had a 5-year-old child in the vehicle with him. That child was conscious and alert, but was taken to Akron Children's Hospital with facial injuries.

The drivers of all four vehicles that struck the elderly man who died suffered only minor injuries. They are all checked at the scene of the accident.

This man's family has to learn to live without him. While the little boy survived, he had to get medical care. The entire series of events is something that will likely haunt their memories.

If you have suffered injuries in a car accident or lost a loved one in a car crash, you might choose to seek compensation from the driver who caused the accident. Learning about Ohio laws regarding these claims might help you to plan your next steps.
