3 injured, 1 dead in tragic head-on collision

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said an accident involving two vehicles resulted in the death of a 70-year-old man and injuries to three others.

The accident occurred on U.S. 30 in Ontario, Ohio, which is about an hour away from Columbus. A 1997 Lincoln Town Car was traveling the wrong way when it struck a Chevy Impala head-on. The driver of the Town Car, an 86-year-old man, was taken to a local hospital with injuries described as non-life threatening. The driver of the Impala also suffered non-life threatening injuries. A 70-year-old passenger in the Impala was airlifted to a Columbus hospital, but passed away the following morning.

The crash is still under investigation and as of yet, there was no mention of any citations issued.

Motor vehicle accidents like this one can bring up specific thoughts as to their cause. Because of the advanced ages of he drivers, should they both still have been driving? While there is no age limit for older drivers in Ohio, the renewal frequency does happen more often and a vision test, medical exam or a driving reexamination may all be required. A restricted driver license may be issued depending on the results of the tests. Some of the restrictions could include driving only daylight hours, no freeway driving and limited geographical areas that a senior may drive in.

If you have been injured or you have lost a loved one in a traffic crash and you believe that the driver's age and ability caused the collision, you may be able to seek compensation. An attorney can provide you with additional information.
