Six people were taken to trauma centers to be treated for Ohio Car Accident Injuries they sustained in a three-vehicle collision that occurred last Friday. Records show the crash happened at approximately 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. Highway 62 and Ohio 661, outside of Columbus, Ohio.
According to a story published by the Newark Advocate, the 38-year-old driver of a white Ford F-250 pickup truck hauling a boat was heading eastbound along U.S. Highway 62. As the driver passed through the intersection with Ohio 661, a black Ford F-150 traveling south on 661 ran a stop sign and the two trucks collided.
The impact of the crash caused the boat attached to the white truck to come off its trailer. The boat then struck another vehicle traveling northbound on 661.
The driver of the white truck and a 5-ayear-old passenger in the vehicle were severely injured and were airlifted from the crash scene. Four others, including the driver of the black truck, were taken to Columbus hospitals by ambulance to be further evaluated.
The incident highlights the risks motorists face at intersections. Records show a majority of collisions occur a points where two or more roads meet, leaving many wondering what they can do to prevent such accidents from occurring.
The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy suggest motorists always look twice in both directions before attempting to enter traffic at an intersection.
