Fatal Trucking Accidents in Ohio
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30,000 individuals pass away in car accidents each year in the US. Truck accidents are the most harmful because they may involve numerous cars at once and result in serious injuries in a matter of seconds.
