Car accidents: toddler dead in Ohio

A crash authorities are calling a "senseless tragedy" has led to the death of a toddler, according to local sources. Ohio police in East Cleveland responded to the crash that also sent a driver and an adult passenger to the hospital. Police believe, as with many car accidents, this one may have been predicated by drug and/or alcohol use, though no charges have been filed at this time. 

Details are sparse at the moment, but it has been confirmed that the accident happened around 1:40 a.m. on May 17. A sedan carrying three people was traveling on Shaw Avenue when the driver appeared to lose control of the vehicle. The car veered off the roadway before striking a tree at what appeared to be a high rate of speed. The driver, a 60-year-old, as well as a 49-year-old passenger and a 1-year-old child were all taken to a local hospital. The child was later pronounced dead. 

Car accidents: 2-car pileup sends 4 to hospital

Four people were injured in a serious car accident at the corner of Gettysburg and Wentworth, according to local sources. Ohio authorities on the scene reported that a child and three adults were taken to local hospitals as a result of the crash. So far, no charges have been filed against any of the drivers involved, but as is the case with many car accidents, this one is still under investigation. 

According to the limited information in the report, it appears that, just before 6:30 p.m., the evening of April 24, two vehicles collided in an intersection. One vehicle was flipped on its side when officers arrived on the scene, and medics were dispatched immediately to handle injuries. Police closed the road to facilitate their investigation. 

Serious or fatal car accidents can happen at any time

Navigating crowded and congested roadways can be stressful and dangerous. It goes without saying that no person wants to be involved in a crash. However, statistics say that the vast majority of drivers will be involved in an accident at some point during their lives. As populations continue to increase in Ohio, car accidents seem to be happening more and more across the state. 

Several people were injured in a recent crash involving two vehicles in Hartland Township. The accident happened at night at the intersection of Greenwich Milan Townline Road and Scranton Road. According to reports, the driver of an SUV was traveling north on Greenwich Milan Townline Road and failed to stop at the intersection. Reports said the SUV struck another SUV that was traveling east on Scranton Road.

Car accidents: 4 injured, 1 critically, in Ohio

A serious crash in Harrison Township has sent four people to a local hospital. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that the crash injured four people, including a 1-year-old child. As with many car accidents of this type, this crash is still under investigation by Ohio authorities, and charges have not been filed against the drivers involved at this time. 

According to the limited information provided in the report, it appears an SUV driven by an unknown person was traveling in Harrison Township around 11:30 a.m. on April 27 when the accident occurred. The vehicle struck a car attempting to make a left turn, causing the SUV to flip over onto its roof. Four people were taken to the hospital, including a 1-year-old child. 

Crashes: Even experienced bikers can suffer debilitating injuries

Although riding a motorcycle in Ohio can be a fun and exhilarating experience, it is also very dangerous. Conditions are not always perfect, and even experienced riders can be involved in crashes that could leave them with permanent disabilities. The risks of suffering catastrophic injuries are much more significant for motorcyclists than for motorists.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, millions of motorcycles are registered nationwide, including in Ohio, and thousands of them lose their lives in accidents each year. Leather coverings and helmets provide only partial protection, and fractured bones and brain trauma can occur without penetration wounds. With no other protection, various types of injuries can lead to permanent disabilities.

Car accidents: 1 dead in Ohio accident

A 51-year-old woman has tragically lost her life following a two-car crash in Clayton, according to local sources. Ohio police responded to the crash on the afternoon of March 31 in the area of Hoke Road and Salem Avenue. As with many car accidents, this one remains under investigation by authorities, and so far, no charges have been filed. 

According to the report, it appears that, at around 3:55 p.m., a vehicle in which the victim was a passenger was headed northbound on Hoke Road when the accident occurred. A second vehicle, driven by a 63-year-old man, entered the intersection of Hoke and Salem headed westbound, and struck the woman's car. The victim was sitting in the passenger seat and was badly injured in the impact. She was pronounced dead some time later at a local hospital. 

Alcohol-related accidents: UTV crash kills passenger

Shortly after 6:30 p.m. on a recent Tuesday, a 911 call reported an accident in which one person was injured. Detectives and deputies, along with the fire department, responded to the accident scene in Ohio. This ultimately led to a UTV driver facing felony charges. Sadly, many alcohol-related accidents lead to fatal injuries.

In this case, first responders arrived at the accident scene to find a man trapped by a crashed UTV. Reportedly, rescue workers who responded determined that the trapped victim was a passenger. He landed under the vehicle after he was ejected during a crash that followed the driver losing control and the vehicle rolling over.

Car accidents: 2 dead after Ohio crash

Two residents of Springfield have been tragically killed following an accident in Champagne County on March 27, according to local sources. The local sheriff's office, as well as Ohio authorities, responded to the two-car crash that claimed the lives of a driver and passenger, while another driver was injured in the accident. As with many car accidents, this crash remains under the investigation of authorities in Champagne County. 

According to the investigation, around 7:40 a.m., a southbound pickup truck driven by an unidentified person crossed the center line of Urbana-Moorefield Road for unknown reasons. This caused a head-on crash with another vehicle, driven by a 20-year-old woman and carrying a 22-year-old male passenger. The force of the impact caused the deaths of both of these individuals. 

Car accidents: passenger dead in 2-car crash

An 18-year-old woman is dead following a two-car crash in Margaretta Township, according to local sources.

According to the limited information available, it appears that, at around 1 a.m. on the morning of March 16, a vehicle driven by a 62-year-old man was attempting to navigate a left-hand turn from State Route 101 to State Route 2 when the accident occurred. A vehicle driven by a 19-year-old woman failed to stop at the intersection, causing her vehicle to hit the driver's side of the man's car. Both individuals, as well as an 18-year-old female passenger in the woman's car, were taken to local hospitals with injuries.

Police in Cleveland have confirmed the deaths of at least two people in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 480, according to local sources. Ohio authorities say that, in addition, several other people have been taken to the hospital. As with many car accidents, this one remains under investigation, but charges seem unlikely at this time. 

Very little information has been made available at this time. However, it appears that sometime around 4 a.m. the morning of March 14, a vehicle was heading westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-480 when it struck another car head-on at the point where the highway merges with Jennings Freeway. The driver of the wrong-way vehicle, who has not been identified at this time, was killed in the crash.
