Students on the Central State University campus in Ohio were offered trauma counseling after the recent death of a fellow student. Far too many students lose their lives in car accidents, often involving drugs, alcohol and speed. However, a police report indicates that drugs and alcohol did not seem to play a role in this particular crash, though the speed of the two cars was not yet determined.
Reportedly, the accident took place on a recent Tuesday. A car occupied by a driver and three passengers was apparently struck from behind by another vehicle. The driver and two of the passengers, one of whom is a former student of the same university, were rushed to the hospital.
All three were reported to be in a critical condition. One of the three passengers suffered fatal injuries at the crash scene. The driver whose vehicle rear-ended their vehicle was also injured. Authorities say he was transported to a different hospital. No details were reported regarding the severity of his injuries.
When the negligence of drivers cause death or injuries in car accidents, injured victims and the surviving family members of those who lost their lives may be entitled to pursue financial relief through the Ohio civil justice system. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide the necessary guidance and support with the establishment of negligence, which is a central element of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. The lawyer can also assist with the ensuing legal steps to recover financial losses and emotional damages sustained.
