A recent accident that took place in Ohio resulted in the death of one individual. Reportedly, the car accident involved three vehicles after an initial collision between two vehicles pushed a car into an SUV. The car had apparently been traveling west when it attempted to make a turn into the parking lot of a store. During that turn, the car was hit by a pickup truck. 

The collision caused the car to spin, which resulted in it crashing into an SUV that had been stopped at the entrance to the store parking lot. The car had at least three occupants. It was not mentioned whether the pickup truck or SUV had any additional occupants other than the respective drivers.

A passenger in the car was reported as having suffered fatal injuries after the crash. She was 38 years old and was declared dead at the accident site. The woman’s daughter, who was in the back seat of the car, had to be cut from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. The driver of the car was also treated for injuries, but he was later released. At the time of the report, no charges were filed, but authorities were continuing to investigate.

The family of the victim killed in this Ohio car accident will likely want to move forward in the best manner possible for their situation. Because such tragedies can often lead to emotional and financial challenges, seeking compensation may be a step they want to consider. Filing a wrongful death claim against the party or parties considered at fault for the accident could allow them to pursue reparations. Similarly, the seriously injured individual may choose to look into personal injury claims of her own.
