No one in Ohio, or anywhere else in the United States, can predict a car accident. Unfortunately, when it occurs, a family may face many challenges, unanswered questions and dilemma, particularly if the incident claims the life of their loved one. Devastation is what an Ohio family called it, following a bus-car accident that killed a 21-year-old woman.
A devastating car crash happened in Ohio after a pickup truck collided with a bus. According to the report, the pickup truck went out of control and slammed into the oncoming bus. Sadly, the impact of the collision sent the bus to the nearest sidewalk, hitting two pedestrians who were walking along the road.
According to the police report, the pickup truck driver was a 61-year-old man. The driver allegedly ran a red light at High Street and crashed into the Groveport Madison School’s yellow school bus. Police identified the passenger of the truck as a 51-year-old woman. She was hospitalized at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and is listed in serious condition. The driver of the school bus also suffered injuries but is listed in stable condition. None of the children on the bus were harmed.
However, the 21-year-old daughter of an Ohio family was killed in the collision. The young woman was a mechanical engineering student at Ohio State University. She was walking with her 58-year-old boss when the fatal car accident occurred. The two were both struck, killing the woman and injuring the city’s chief mobility engineer as a result. No criminal charges have been filed so far, but the authorities are continuing their investigation into the deadly accident.
Fatalities and serious injuries as a result of car accidents can damage an Ohio family in many ways. However, if the accident investigation determines that reckless operation plays a role in the deadly crash, there is a possibility that the responsible driver may be found liable for the incident.
