On July 11, 2009, an SUV was making a left hand turn across a stretch of Ohio highway when it was struck by another passenger car. The accident was so forceful that it caused the SUV to roll over completely before coming to a rest.
The driver and 5 passengers within the SUV, as well as the driver of the other car, were all transported to a local hospital so their injuries could be treated. Fortunately, none of the people involved in the motor vehicle accident were killed and none suffered very serious injuries.
One of the interesting aspects of this SUV accident is the location. Local residents and witnesses said that the intersection where the auto accident took place has caused many different accidents in the past. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), however, does not believe the intersection is dangerous enough to require changes to be made.
This is an excellent example of a why an experienced auto accident lawyer should be contacted to help victims of car accidents. A car accident attorney will research the history of the intersection and the factors involved this auto accident to determine who is liable for the injuries suffered.
