Studies have shown that the chance of a teen driver being involved in an accident grows exponentially higher as the number of passengers in the vehicle increases. An article from The Plain Dealer highlights a crash that recently claimed the lives of six teens and left two others seriously injured.
A spokesperson for the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Lt. Anne Ralston, stated the Ohio Auto Accident happened this past Sunday morning along Pine Avenue SE in the town of Warren. Ralston explained the teens were just south of town in a Honda Passport SUV when the vehicle suddenly careened off the shoulder of the road, struck a guardrail, and then rolled into a pond.
The impact of the accident left five people unconscious as the vehicle sank into the freezing water, while another victim was ejected from the vehicle. Two teens were able to free themselves from the crash and called for help from a nearby residence.
The teens that remained in the vehicle after the accident each died, as did the victim who was thrown from the vehicle. The two teens that called for help were injured and were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy would like to send their deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the victims of this tragedy. The firm would also like to wish the two survivors a full and speedy recovery from their injuries.
