Ohio woman killed in wrong-way driving collision

Ohio is a great state for driving, with long flat roads that intersect the state like a well-planned urban grid. The Buckeye State, however, is not a largely urban state, and the straight highways can be enticing for fast drivers looking to cover distance quickly.

Many state highways and other roads such as interstates can pose dangers of cars and trucks being close to each other while they are driving at high speeds in opposite directions. Wrong-way collisions are rare but can be highly destructive and increase the chances of serious injury or death.

A 20-year-old woman from outside Salineville became the sixth traffic fatality in Ohio’s Carroll County for 2017 when her car was struck by a pickup truck going the other direction on a road in Brown Township. She was driving south near Stark County in a car alone at the time of the accident.

The driver of the pickup truck heading north was uninjured, although five passengers in his vehicle received minor injuries. Local law enforcement and the Ohio State Police are investigating the accident.

The victim was in her third year at an Ohio university, as well as a member of a local church and employee at a local restaurant. Her funeral has been set for the following week.

Victims of car accidents and other motor vehicle collisions or their survivors may claim financial damages from accidents in which another driver is at fault. A lawyer may help victims assess their options and the evidence in a particular case.
