Two children dead after Interstate 76 crash

A family on their way home from Columbus, Ohio met with tragedy on Interstate 76 when a 2-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy were killed in a crash. The car accident occurred near the exit for State Route 534 when the SUV in which the children were riding rolled over in the median and landed in the westbound lane, where it was struck by an oncoming semi truck.

The SUV was driven by the children's 38-year-old father. The two children, along with their mother, were riding in the back seat of the vehicle and the three were ejected. Police believe that the three victims were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash although the driver was belted in. The mother and father were taken to a hospital with serious injuries but are expected to survive. A dog riding with the family also survived the crash. The semi truck driver was not injured.

Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances of the crash. The westbound side of the interstate was closed for several hours as authorities cleaned up debris, including a car seat ejected during the accident, and continued to examine the scene for clues as to the cause of the accident.

Victims of car accidents may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, including costs of medical bills, extra living expenses, lost wages and compensation for mental anguish, pain, and suffering. In order to collect these damages, many car accident victims retain a personal injury attorney to help them. An attorney may be able to assist the victims in recovering money to pay for expenses and costs associated with a car accident.
