Driver in truck accident may have had suspended license

Ohio is highly dependent on land transportation for its economic health and its people’s ability to travel and commute. The rules of the road protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike by restricting dangerous behavior and ensuring drivers are qualified.

The ability of drivers to operate vehicles safely is especially important when it comes to trucks, construction vehicles and other heavy equipment. Even small or low-speed collisions with large vehicles can be very dangerous to safety and property.

An Ohio woman died in a crash when her sport utility vehicle was struck from the rear by a cement-mixing truck. Local police say the man’s driver’s license was suspended at the time of the collision, which may increase the driver and his employer’s liability in the accident.

A concrete bucket truck with a Hamilton construction company was traveling west on Ohio State Route 129 when it rear-ended the victim’s vehicle. It burst into flames, and 58-year-old woman was killed at the scene.

Police estimate the speed of the truck was high at the time of the collision, leading to the possibility that the truck’s brakes failed. An officer said the driver’s license was suspended, although any work driving privileges are still unknown.

Victims of truck accidents or the survivors of those killed are entitled under Ohio law to seek financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages or other expenses related to the accident. An attorney may be the best choice as an aid for discovering the possible options in civil law.
