Today is the one-year anniversary of the tragic wrong-way accident that killed three BGSU sorority sisters. The accident happened on March 2, 2012 as the Bowling Green State University spring break had just begun.
The wrong-way accident took place on I-75 as the BGSU students were heading to the airport for their spring break vacation. Their vehicle was hit by 69-year-old Winifred Lein of Perrysburg as she traveled the opposite way of traffic.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of those that were killed in the accident. It was a tragedy that received a lot of publicity and attention from the media. It also seemed to mark the beginning of a wrong-way accident trend in the Toledo area, raising several issues that still remain.
We can only hope that the wrong-way accident trend will not continue through this year. Our law office reminds drivers to be safe on the roadway, drive defensively, and never get behind the wheel if under the influence.
