Cleveland, OH (August 21, 2020) – A collision involving three vehicles on Wednesday resulted in injuries for at least one person in the Cleveland area. At around 1:30 p.m., on August 19, the Cleveland Police Department responded to the scene of a crash on Interstate 71, the Medina Freeway, with a team of firefighters.

Reports provided by local news sources show that a red pickup truck, a golden SUV, and a third vehicle collided on the northbound side of Interstate 71 near the intersection with Interstate 90 in downtown Cleveland. The impact of the crash caused two of the involved vehicles to flip over, with one landing on its top. At least one person was injured in the accident. Emergency medical services responded to the site and rendered aid to victims at the scene. An unknown number of victims were transported to area hospitals for further treatment of injuries. Crews spent an extended time at the area clearing debris from the roadway. All three vehicles involved in the crash were towed away from the scene. Traffic delays were seen throughout the area for over an hour as crews worked to reopen the roadway. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Cleveland, OH – Three-Vehicle Crash on I-71 (Medina Freeway) Results in Injuries

Being involved in a car accident can be life-altering. In some cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment, surgery, and hospitalization. In Ohio, we are no stranger to these unfortunate events. In fact, more than 75,000 people are injured in crashes throughout our state each year. May victims are rushed to area hospitals immediately following their accidents.

Although we would like it if everyone involved a crash were able to recover, this is far from the truth. Each year, thousands of people are left with serious injuries that leave them permanently impaired. When victims suffer brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputations, they are often unable to return their normal way of life. Instead, many victims have to go through long-term treatment that leaves them overwhelmed in mental and physical pain as well as stacking financial burdens. If you were injured in an accident as a result of another person’s actions, it is crucial that you reach out to a car accident attorney in Cleveland who can help you protect your legal rights.
