Despite their own best efforts at staying safe on the road, motorists in Ohio and elsewhere cannot control the actions of other drivers. A moment of inattention or an act of recklessness on the part of a driver can lead to vehicle accidents with horrendous results. Sadly, one woman in Trotwood lost her life recently and two others were injured in a head-on collision.
Details regarding accident
Around 8:30 a.m. during the morning on March 29, officers in Montgomery County responded to a wreck on Twin Woods Drive and Shiloh Road. There, they found two cars had been involved in a head-on collision. One of the drivers, a 39-year-old woman was killed in the collision.
Authorities also found two others who had been severely injured in the accident. They were taken to a local medical center for treatment. No word was given as to their statuses, and the accident is still under investigation.
Determining fault and seeking compensation
The report did not specify which driver officials believe broached the center line and collided with the other vehicle head-on. Those findings will help determine culpability so that those adversely affected can pursue civil claims against the other in an attempt at recovering damages. Whether the deceased woman caused the accident or the driver of the other vehicle, those dealing with the aftermath of this terrible tragedy should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in Ohio to gain a full understanding of their rights and options with regards to seeking compensation.
