Fatalities in Ohio car crash

An Owen County accident resulted in the death of two people and a serious injury for a third. Police are still investigating the car accident and its cause.

The car accident occurred at about 5 p.m. on U.S. Route 127. A driver of a pickup truck crossed the center line and had a head-on collision with another car that was driven by a 73-year-old woman, who had a 76-year-old woman in the vehicle as a passenger. Both women were taken to a medical center in Owenton and died as a result of the injuries that they suffered from the car accident.

The pickup driver was flown by a helicopter to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and was reported as having life-threatening injuries. Kentucky State Police said that all individuals involved in the crash were wearing seat belts. They also said that they have not determined the reason why the driver crossed the center line.

Individuals may cross the center line and cause a head-on collision for many reasons. Distracted drivers may be texting and driving and not paying attention to the road in front of them. Drunk drivers may be impaired to the point that they are swerving back and forth. A negligent driver may be attempting to pass another driver and may not be using proper precautions. When the negligence of a driver results in another person's developing a serious injury, the injured victim may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver. With the help of a Cincinnati personal injury attorney, the victims' families may be able to seek damages against the negligent parties if victims died as a result of their injuries.
