Mercer County Crash Kills Indiana Man
A Tuesday crash in Celina resulted in the death of an Indiana man, Ronald Albers, after the driver of a tractor-trailer failed to stop at a stop sign.
Albers, from Portland, Ind., was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, occurring at the intersection of state Routes 29 and 118. The accident happened early in the morning at around 6 a.m. as Albers was driving east on state Route 29. His car collided with a southbound tractor-trailer on state Route 118 that had failed to yield at the stop sign.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, Robert Riley, struck a Toyota truck after colliding with Albers car. The truck was driven by Abraham Timmerman, who was not injured in the crash.
Our office’s thoughts and prayers go out to the Albers family as they mourn the loss of their loved one.
Failure to Yield
The at-fault driver in this accident appears to be Riley, the driver of the tractor-trailer. He failed to stop at the intersection’s stop sign, causing the collision with Albers car; therefore he was in violation of Ohio Revised Code 4511.43 Right-of-way rule at through highways, stop signs, yield signs.
We would advise Albers’ family to contact an Ohio wrongful death attorney to handle their case as soon as possible. It can significantly help a case if a lawyer is hired sooner rather than later, as there are many factors that can be taken care of much easier early on in the process.
