Traffic light to be installed at deadly Clearcreek intersection

On March 16, the intersection of State Road 48 and Lytle Five Points Road was the scene of a deadly car accident. According to police, the wreck occurred when a man traveling in the westbound lane on Lytle Five Points Road failed to stop at the intersection and collided with a pickup truck that was traveling northbound.

This car accident highlighted the dangers that other local drivers were already aware of at this particular intersection. Speed on the road, coupled with the lack of a traffic light, have been concerns for drivers, and the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced that it will be placing a traffic light in this location during the summer in response to these mounting concerns and growth in the area. The March 16 wreck is one of two fatal accidents that have occurred in the area in recent weeks; the other reportedly happened only a mile away on the same road.

While the new traffic light could slow down traffic and provide a safer driving experience for other drivers, some have already been victims of a car accident in this area. Victims of car accidents and their families may experience pain, suffering and financial expenses related to medical bills, funeral costs and lost wages as a result of similar incidents. The financial burden associated with an accident like this one may be significant, and those affected may seek punitive damages by filing a civil lawsuit against the driver responsible for the event.

A personal injury claim may provide the victim with financial relief from expenses incurred as a result of an accident and may additionally provide him or her with a sense of closure. An Ohio personal injury lawyer may help the victim get started on a claim and so he or she can recover financially as well as emotionally.
