Impaired driving may have contributed to interstate crash

The interstate highway system exists in part to move a large amount of traffic in one direction fairly quickly. Wrong-way and do-not-enter signs are posted on interstate exit ramps in an attempt to prevent cars from entering an interstate while moving in the wrong direction. Sadly, cars still end up on the wrong side of the interstate, driving against traffic and sometimes with tragic results. One such crash, that may have involved impaired driving, happened recently in Ohio.

A family of three was recently traveling south on I-75 near Moraine when they encountered a vehicle traveling north. The northbound vehicle struck the southbound vehicle head-on. The force of the impact caused fatal injuries to all three of the occupants of the southbound vehicle, one of whom was a 10-year-old-girl.

It is not known exactly how the northbound driver came to be driving on the wrong side of the interstate. Police do not yet know if the driver crossed over at some point or if he drove up an exit ramp. Police have reported that they believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The accident caused the interstate to be closed for almost five hours. The accident remains under investigation.

Traffic on Ohio interstates has increased as people search for quicker routes to their destinations. As with traffic anywhere, an increase in traffic causes an increase in the likelihood of accidents. The death of a family as the result of an accident that involves impaired driving is tragic. The grief and heartbreak may be indescribable. While no one can turn back time and bring the deceased back, a civil suit against the party deemed responsible may provide compensation for medical costs, final costs and other verifiable losses.
