Fatal Auto Accidents in Ohio
Over the past few months, we have witnessed an alarming increase in the number of fatal crashes across the state of Ohio, particularly here in Cuyahoga County. Statistics from the Ohio State Highway Patrol show that approximately 132 wrong way collisions have been reported so far this year. These accidents have claimed the lives of 14 individuals in total.
Unfortunately, there are various factors that can cause drivers to head the wrong way on the roadway.
One of the most common factors contributing to this type of accident is drivers who are unfamiliar with the roadways. When drivers are not from the area or have not traveled on specific roads before, they may not know how to enter them in the correct direction.
Another factor that can lead to wrong-way collisions is drivers who are impaired. When drivers are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or other intoxicants, they may not be able to make responsible decisions in the operation of their vehicles. Finally, we see many wrong-way collisions take place as a result of distracted drivers. When drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead of them, they may not see coos on the side of the road or traffic signs that indicate that they are going in the wrong direction.
No matter what the cause of the accident is, the results are often devastating. The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things that anyone ever has to deal with in their lifetime.
