While all of the roadway crash cases the Ohio auto accident attorneys at the Charles Boyk Law Offices handle, one significant pattern stands out: the larger the vehicles involved, the more likely it is that the drivers and passengers will sustain permanent or fatal injuries.
An example of this is seen in a recent Toledo truck accident that resulted in the injury of 38 and the death of two.
While driving a pickup truck, a 19 year-old motorist was texting feverishly on his cell phone when he crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer, ultimately igniting a chain reaction. As a result of the initial collision, a school bus rear-ended the pickup truck, which in turn his another school bus. Although emergency medical crews rushed to the crash site, both the driver of the pickup truck and a 15 year-old student on one of the buses were pronounced dead at the scene. A total of 38 other individuals were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment of other serious injuries.
