While it goes without saying that safety should be a top priority anytime one gets behind the wheel, the skilled Toledo auto accident lawyers at the Charles Boyk Law Offices know all too well: even if a motorist is using the utmost caution, gruesome crashes resulting in serious personal injury can still happen. This is especially true if the driver isn’t as up-to-date on the rules of the road as he or she should be, or is unfamiliar with the area in which they were driving.
Such are the circumstances in a recent Lucas County motor vehicle accident that resulted in the injury of two.
Early Sunday morning, a car driven by Shane Oneail collided with an SUV at Kilburn Road and Brint Road in Richfield Township. The impact of the collision Oneail and his passenger, Eric Berg, to sustain signifcant injuries and the two were immediately transported by air ambulance to Toledo Hospital. Both Oneail and Berg are currently listed in fair condition. Both the driver of the SUV, James Glaze, and his passenger Ashley Breakfield refused treatment and appeared to survive the incident unscratched.
While no additional details have been released at this time, law enforcement officials believe that the incident happened because Oneail wrongfully thought the intersection he was approaching was a four-way stop. Police cited Oneail for failure to yield.
