Thompson Twp, OH (December 27, 2021) – A driver was killed and two passengers injured following a traffic accident in Thompson Township on Monday morning, December 27. The deadly crash occurred at the intersection of County Road 34 and Township Line Road at around 1:20 a.m.
Local reports revealed that a 2003 Dodge Caravan was traveling on the roadway when the driver left the road and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle re-entered the road and over-corrected before leaving the right side of the roadway. The car hit a tree and overturned several times.
The driver, 41-year-old Brian Sampsel of Bellevue, suffered fatal injuries in the crash. A 22-year-old and 25-year-old passenger were both injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment. Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the accident.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Brian Sampsel at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Auto Accidents in Ohio
You’re always in danger of colliding with another vehicle when you’re driving, and the majority of us do it every day. Every year, approximately 3 million people are injured in car accidents in the United States. In the state of Ohio alone, there were 1,131 traffic fatalities in 2017. Over 400 people were killed in the state by drunk drivers in the same year.
Many car accident victims have difficulty understanding their rights in time to protect themselves after an accident. After a collision, you must act quickly to protect your compensation claim. The majority of people are unaware of state laws, insurance policies, or what to do if they are injured in a car accident, which can be a roadblock in obtaining compensation. You do not have to pursue a personal injury claim on your own; instead, you can hire an experienced attorney to help you recover lost compensation. A personal injury lawyer in Thompson Township can help you file a claim and recover damages like medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.
