4 injured in snow-related Ohio car crash

The roads of Ohio are often quite safe, with long straight expanses of state roads that resemble a grid pattern across much of the state. The position of the Buckeye State at the crossroads of the Northeast and the Midwest regions brings millions of cars and trucks onto the roads from various parts of the state and elsewhere around the continent.

Many state roads are lined by deep trenches on either side, which prevent flooding and errant livestock from interfering with traffic. Weather can also pose a challenge to urban and rural roads, and drivers have to be vigilant when rain or snow alters the surface of roads.

A recent accident heralded the coming winter season, which can make conditions on Ohio roads more hazardous. Four people are in the hospital after two cars collided on Ohio State Route 5 in Johnston Township in Trumbull County.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash, which they say occurred when fresh snow covered the road. A 35-year-old man was driving a car which slid into another car driven by a 75-year-old woman. Two juveniles were in the man’s car and had to be taken to the hospital, one with severe injuries.

No charges have yet been filed in the incident, although civil cases and settlements may be filed against or negotiated with drivers that may be at fault in a motor vehicle accident. Victims may consult an attorney on the best way to lodge complaints and claim financial restitution after an accident-related injury.
