Drunk driving accident claims the life of 18-year-old

A mother's heart is broken, and a family is mourning the loss of their loved one. This devastating loss resulted from a tragic drunk driving accident, and the family is forced to relive this nightmare with every court appearance. In Ohio, and in every other state, drunk driving accidents will forever impact all parties involved. 

In May 2016, a man was accused of causing an accident while driving drunk. He had been driving a vehicle that claimed the life of a teen just days before he was to graduate from Crestview High School. He has now pleaded guilty to seven different charges that include aggravated vehicular homicide, and he is facing up to six years in prison. 

Sliip-and-fall accident allegedly causes injuries at resort

A woman in another state recently claimed that she fell at a resort and suffered injuries. She has thus decided to file a lawsuit against the resort, claiming that the resort was negligent. Any individual in Ohio who suffers injuries in a slip-and-fall accident due to the carelessness of a property owner has the right to seek to hold that property owner accountable through the civil court system.

In the out-of-state case, the woman asserted that she was inside an elevator and stepped in a puddle. She then reportedly lost her balance and ended up falling. The woman claimed that the fall caused her to break her wrist.

First responder injured in car crash

First responders are the first to arrive at accident scenes. They are the men and women who spend their time helping others and sometimes they put their lives on the line during emergency calls. In Ohio, the Springfield Township Fire Department is holding a vigil for one of its own after a devastating car crash

The department had responded to the first accident scene near U.S. 68 and Fairfield Pike. At  about 10 p.m., a second accident occurred and a 72-year-old volunteer first responder was hit. He had been helping crash victims when a car barrelled through an accident scene, pinning him against one of the wrecked cars. The man lost his leg in the crash and is now recovering at Miami Valley Hospital. 

Listeria contamination forces product recall

A popular vegetable supplier has issued a voluntary recall of product tainted with listeria, a harmful bacterium. This recall includes certain packaged produce distributed at food markets across the United States and Canada. Six supermarkets are involved in the product recall, and a major food retailer in Ohio has pulled several dozen products off shelves. 

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered the contamination through routine sampling, and the supplier has issued the recall as a precautionary measure. No product-related illnesses have been reported. Authorities advise consumers to check the "best if used by" date on the product package and discard or return any with dates Oct. 11 to Oct. 20.  

Five die in tragic drunk driving accident

Car crashes are a tragedy for everyone involved. Today, several families are mourning the loss of their loved ones because one driver decided to drive the wrong way on the interstate. The drunk driving accident occurred near downtown Dayton Ohio, and no one, including the drunk driver, survived.

The crash occurred on I-75 when a man traveling the wrong way collided with an SUV carrying four friends. The driver had a blood-alcohol content level approximately three times higher than the legal limit. He had been driving on a suspended license, and he had supposedly contemplated suicide in the past.

Product recall issued on 2,190 pounds of meat in Ohio

Meat lovers in the state might want to be wary of several different types of meat for a while. One brand, Newswanger Meats of Ohio, has issued a voluntary product recall for over 2,000 pounds of sliced deli products, chicken, pork and beef after the discovery that these meats may have been processed in unsanitary conditions. Customers are being asked to check their meat products to be sure that they aren't a part of this recall.

Most of the meat products in question were sold at Newswanger's retail stores. There was some meat, however, that was distributed elsewhere. For example, the meat from three hogs was sent to Ohio City Provisions and more of the meat was sent to Fresh Fork Market. All of the meat is considered to be at risk.

Ohio car accident leaves 1 dead, 4 injured

There are many factors that affect the safety of drivers and passengers. The weather, road conditions and general traffic patterns may all be things that are out of a driver's control and may contribute to a car accident. However, the one element that is most concerning may be the condition of the driver. When a driver does not take seriously the responsibility to operate a motor vehicle safely, the lives of his or her passengers -- as well as others on the road -- are placed in danger.

One out-of-state family is mourning the loss of a loved one following an Ohio traffic accident. On a recent afternoon, a 25-year-old driver was transporting three passengers when he allegedly failed to yield at an intersection. A transit bus traveling east collided with the man's vehicle, sending it off the road into the grass. The impact of the collision fatally injured a 29-year-old passenger in the back seat of the car.

Dangerous property: Amusement park safety standards questioned

In July, an Ohio teenager was killed, and seven other individuals suffered injuries when a ride at an amusement park broke apart. Safety standards are being questioned after several accidents occurred nationwide in recent months. There are calls for a national reporting system through which amusement park accidents and relevant dangerous property reports can be filed.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, it does not govern amusement park safety as a whole. Reportedly it is a self-policing structure with regulations varying from state to state. CPSC does, however, have safety standards for mobile amusement establishments, but those are voluntary guidelines and not rules. Investigators that examined the Ohio accident determined that corroded equipment caused the equipment failure, despite a state inspection passing it earlier.

Product recall on raw milk for 7 states, including Ohio

Thousands of people are at risk of infection after a contamination issue hit seven different states. Raw milk from one state has been linked to illnesses in six others, including Ohio, after Brucella bacteria was found in the drink, resulting in a product recall. It is currently illegal to sell raw milk across state lines. Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized.

A doctor from the leading investigation group of brucellosis from the Centers for Disease Control stated that anyone who may have ingested this milk should be tested for this bacteria as soon as possible. Even those people who do not yet have symptoms could develop a chronic infection at a later time that could adversely affect their health years down the road. The milk is known as K Bar milk and comes from the K Bar Dairy in another state.

Auto wreck in Ohio kills parents and toddler

Whenever drivers of passenger cars have to share the roadways with big rigs, they will be vulnerable. The sheer size of a tractor-trailer leaves occupants of cars with little chance of survival in the event of a collision. Such an auto wreck that involved a car and a large truck recently claimed the lives of a toddler and her parents in Ohio.

According to an accident report, the crash occurred in Preble County on a recent Tuesday. Authorities say a tractor-trailer driver disregarded a red traffic light. Reportedly, it struck two other cars before crashing into the car carrying the parents and the child.
