A three-vehicle crash on Tuesday afternoon crash resulted in the injury of four people who were taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center.
Walt Griffin failed to yield at a stop sign while operating his 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. He has been cited for failure to yield and obeying a traffic control device, which reportedly caused the three-vehicle accident.
After failing to yield at the stop sign, Griffin’s truck hit a Ford Explorer that was eastbound on U.S. 6, driven by 17-year-old Jerrid Bullion. Passenger in the Ford Explorer was 44-year-old Russell Setchel. After the collision with the Ford Explorer, Griffin’s truck also struck a Chrysler van, but thankfully no one inside the van was hurt.
Those injured and taken to the hospital as a result of this crash include at-fault driver Walt Griffin, his son Marvin Griffin, Jerrid Bullion of the Ford Explorer and his passenger Russel Setchel. Our thoughts go out to these individuals as they recover from their injuries.
Injured in Sandusky Car Accident
Our lawyers have represented clients who have been injured in multiple vehicle accidents and we can thankfully say that the result of this accident could have been much worse. But, there were injuries sustained and those individuals deserve compensation if those injuries warrant it.
We would advise Bullion and Setchel to contact a car accident lawyer as soon as possible. It appears as though Walt Griffin has been deemed at fault since he has been cited for failure to yield, so they may have a legitimate personal injury claim, but speaking with a lawyer directly will give them a better idea of their options.
