Failure to maintain safe distance leads to car accident

Drivers are required to maintain an "assured clear distance" from the vehicles in front of them.

2 people die in a crash caused by a driver running a red light

Two people died in a recent Ohio accident when the car they were driving in was hit by a teenage driver who ran a red light.

Running stop sign causes multicar accident with injuries

A driver ran a stop sign recently at the intersection of U.S. 62 and Ohio 661, causing a multi-vehicle car accident and injuries to six people. The driver of a Ford F-150 pickup traveling southbound on Ohio 661 ran the stop sign, colliding with another pickup traveling eastbound on U.S. 62.
