Car crash involving a truck causes havoc

Trucks and cars share the same roadways in Ohio and around the country. As traffic increases, so does the likelihood of car and truck-involved crashes. A car crash involving a tractor-trailer and multiple vehicles caused numerous injuries and the closure of a stretch of I-71 that backed up traffic for several hours.

The accident happened in Medina County near mile marker 217. A semi struck another vehicle, a Nissan, causing the driver of the Nissan to lose control and hit a guardrail. The Nissan flipped into the median and came to rest on its roof. The semi continued moving and hit a Dodge Ram pickup truck. After hitting the pickup, the semi came to a stop.

Three people were critically injured and airlifted to area hospitals. The driver of the semi was also injured and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. One of the critically injured is now in stable condition. The other two remain in serious condition. The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Being involved in a car crash can be a frightening experience in Ohio, and when injuries are involved the situation becomes that much worse. A family's initial concern will certainly be for the health and recovery of their loved ones. They may also have concerns about lost wages, medical expenses and other financial losses. A conversation with a personal injury attorney can yield information on a possible civil suit against the party or parties deemed responsible. A successful claim can assist with expenses and other documented monetary losses resulting from the accident.
