Winter weather can contribute to the cause of a car accident

Winter weather driving can be hazardous. This is particularly true in places such as Ohio where weather can change quickly and is somewhat unpredictable. The chance of a car accident occurring in such conditions is an ever-present danger. Most drivers are aware of this and exercise appropriate caution when driving in the snow. However, sometimes, the other driver is not as cautious, and a car crash can result.

A crash occurred in Stark County recently that is believed to have been weather related. It happened about 10:00 a.m. on a recent morning. According to police reports, a car was driving west on when a vehicle travelling east lost control and crossed over into the oncoming lane. The road was partially snow covered at the time.

The car that lost control collided with the car that had been travelling west. The impact from the collision forced the westbound vehicle off the road. The driver of that car was pronounced dead at the scene. According to police reports, both drivers were wearing seat belts and alcohol does not appear to have been a contributing factor in the crash. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The sudden loss of a loved one in a car accident in Ohio can be a shock and cause considerable pain and heartache to the loved ones left behind. Although nothing can undo the crash and bring the loved one back, a civil suit may be an option to obtain compensation for medical costs, final costs and other verifiable losses. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney can give families information on what legal options are available to them.
