Most car accidents are caused by inattention or negligence. Some are caused by drunk driving, but even then the driver does not intentionally decide to cause a car accident. But last week, a driver in a red Ford Escort made the conscious decision to crash into another vehicle.
A Mason County police officer endured a traumatic brain injury (TBI) when he fell off his bicycle on May 9, 2011 in Loveland, Ohio. Police say the off-duty officer was out with his dog at the time of the incident, but they are not sure what caused him to fall from his bike.
Unfortunately, it is likely that many Ohio residents will be involved in a car accident at some point in their lives. A common cause of car accidents is negligent driving. We live in a technological time where almost everyone carries a cell phone or uses other portable electronic devices. Talking on a cell phone, texting or becoming otherwise distracted while driving can lead to serious and even fatal accidents.
Last week, one Ohio woman was killed and another was injured in a serious crash. Police officers and emergency medical crews responded to the two-car accident near downtown Columbus early last week. The car accident took place on the northbound side of Interstate 71 near the overpass at the Interstate 670 interchange. The two-car crash resulted in both a personal injury and a fatality.
