Truck accident injures 6, 3 airlifted to Cincinnati hospital

A Pepsi delivery truck rear-ended a passenger vehicle carrying six occupants on University Boulevard and Knightsbridge Drive in Hamilton's East Side last Friday, according to the Hamilton Police Department. Three of the occupants of the vehicle were airlifted to University Hospital Cincinnati for treatment of their injuries. The other three occupants were taken to Fort Hamilton and Mercy hospitals after being freed from the vehicle by firefighters who had to use the "Jaws of Life" to extract them form the car. The truck driver was not injured in the crash.

The truck accident occurred about 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon and police were interviewing the truck driver to determine what happened to cause the crash. Police have not said whether charges were pending or if the driver was suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Apparently none of the injuries were thought to be life-threatening and the three airlifted to the hospital via helicopter were suspected of having sustained internal injuries in the crash.

Both vehicles were towed from the accident scene and police were continuing their investigation to determine a cause for the crash and whether charges were necessary. A rear-end accident such as this would generally be considered the fault of the truck driver, however regardless of whether charges are filed against him, the injured victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries through a civil action. A personal injury claim may provide relief for the victims, including current and future medical expenses.

Rear-end collisions can induce serious head, neck and spine injuries as the sudden impact can snap the head back causing damage to the neck muscles, ligaments and nerves. Traumatic brain injuries can also occur as the impact can cause the brain to collide with the inside of the skull. With six people injured in such an accident the medical bills alone could be astronomical. Depending on the individual injuries there could also be extensive rehabilitation costs and lost wages along with other expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
