The Ohio State Highway Patrol has discovered that there have been five fatal crashes in Guernsey County in 2018. While four of these accidents occurred in rural areas, one took place in the small urban area of the county. Although none of the five fatal crashes involved driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, one was commercial related, and the other had to do with a motorcycle.
When compared to the 10 fatal collisions that occurred in 2017 and seven in 2016, Guernsey County has significantly reduced its fatal accident rate. While this is great news, drivers in the area still need to refrain from speeding, distracted driving, intoxicated driving, and other dangerous behaviors.
Sadly, accidents that arise in Guernsey County often lead to serious injuries and fatalities.
In June 2018, a motorcycle went left of center on U.S. Route 22 and struck an SUV. The SUV driver was free of injuries while the motorcyclist lost his life. Unfortunately, a second motorcyclist sustained injuries right after the accident and was transported to Southeastern Med Hospital in Cambridge.
In November 2018, a truck driver from Virginia was driving a tractor-trailer west on I-70 near Quaker City when it went off the right side of the road, overturned, and caught fire. The accident killed the truck driver at the scene and closed the highway for several hours.
