First responder injured in accident

On Nov. 2, a crash occurred between two vehicles in Clark County, Ohio. The people involved in the accident received minor injuries, both requiring hospital treatment. However, it was a first responder that came to help the injured in the accident that became the most seriously injured due to an unfortunate incident.

A volunteer for the Springfield Township Fire Department was at the scene of the incident and went over to attend to the injured. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that a car drove directly through the scene of the accident and proceeded to hit the man directly, where he eventually became pushed up against the other crashed vehicle.

The man was rushed to hospital and lost his leg as a result of the horrific crash. Because of the fact that the crash occurred slightly before 10 p.m., darkness and low visibility could have been a factor in the incident. So far it has been reported that drugs and alcohol did not appear to play a role in the crash; however, an investigation is underway to assess the causes, and no conclusions about the accident liability have been established at this very early stage. The driver of the second crash was not injured.

A crash with such circumstances as this serves as a dark reminder of the dangers of driving at night and on the speed of a vehicle when approaching intersections. Car accidents can produce tragic results. If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to do research to understand exactly how the law works in regard to your situation.
