In July of 2010, a Northern Ohio car accident claimed the life of a 24-year-old man and injured his 22-year-old girlfriend. The injured woman, along with family members of her deceased boyfriend filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a volunteer fireman and the fire district. The accident happened on State Route 19 while the fireman was on his way to the fire station. According to reports he had been speeding more than 95 miles per hour when he crashed into the back of the vehicle being driven by the 22-year-old female. That vehicle was also occupied by her boyfriend who was killed in the crash.
