Pulling out of a driveway results in a fatal car accident

People see signs that say, 'Caution Hidden Driveway.' How often do people actually pay attention to those signs and exercise caution in Ohio? A car accident that occurred recently in Union Township points to the seriousness of the need to pay attention to such signs.

It was 10:20 p.m. as a person was pulling out of their driveway onto Route 56. The person coming out of the driveway was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado. As the car pulled out it was struck by a 1998 Ford Ranger headed northbound.

The Ranger swerved in an attempt to avoid hitting the Silverado. The Ranger went into the left lane and off the side of the road where it flipped and landed on its roof. The driver of the Ranger was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Ranger was transported to a local hospital with critical injuries. Neither drugs nor alcohol are thought to be contributing factors in the accident, and the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Fatal accidents in Ohio are horrific and cause great feelings of grief and shock to the family and loved ones of the deceased. While their initial response will be to grieve for the loss of their loved one, as feelings of grief and shock begin to subside they may start to look for answers as to the cause of the car accident.  A conversation with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney may assist in bringing closure to the victim's family and loved ones.
