Car accidents: 3 dead following Ohio crash

Three people have tragically died following a car crash in Trotwood, according to local sources. Ohio State Highway Patrol reported to the scene of the accident that claimed the lives of a 35-year-old woman and two teenagers. Police have not said whether they believe recklessness or negligence were factors in the crash, but as with many car accidents, this one is still under investigation. 

According to the report, a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old man was headed southbound when it failed to yield for a red light. This caused the vehicle to strike an eastbound SUV driven by a 35-year-old woman. The force of the impact was enough to kill the driver of the eastbound vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. A 3-year-old child in a safety seat was extricated from the vehicle with only minor injuries. 

The two passengers of the southbound vehicle, both 18-year-old males, were also killed in the impact. The driver was seriously injured and rushed to a local hospital for treatment. Police have said they do not believe drugs and/or alcohol were factors in this accident, but they have yet to determine the cause of the crash. Once their investigation is complete, it will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office to assign potential charges. 

If the young driver who survived the crash is found to have been materially responsible for the accident, he could face criminal charges when he is released from medical care. Separately, as in many car accidents, the families of the deceased victims, as well as the family of the injured child, are entitled under Ohio state law to file wrongful death and/or personal injury suits against the driver. Anyone else with ownership interest in the vehicle could be included in such a suit.
