Two men sustained serious Ohio Truck Accident Injuries as the result of a crash that occurred last week. Reports say the single-vehicle accident happened at around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28, along State Route 72 in Greene County, Ohio.
According to an article from WDTN 2 News, the victims were operating a dump truck along the road when the driver of the vehicle began to lose control. The truck then veered off the road, rolled over, and slid into a ditch, coming to rest upright on its wheels.
The impact of the crash left the driver of the truck trapped inside the vehicle. Rescue crews were called to the scene and pulled both victims to safety. The passenger was airlifted to a local hospital, while the driver was rushed to a Jamestown trauma center for further treatment.
While an investigation has been launched into the cause of the crash, studies have shown that mechanical failures and defective roads lead to a large portion of commercial vehicle crashes. When this occurs, a truck driver who is injured may be entitled to damages for injuries and losses they sustained in an accident.
The process for proving the cause of an accident can be quite complex though. That’s why the Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy suggest discussing your legal rights with an attorney if you have been hurt in a crash involving a commercial vehicle.
