A traffic accident involving an RTA bus and a car on Detroit-Superior Bridge, Cleveland, claimed one life and injured three others. The Detroit-Superior Bridge collision happened on Saturday night, November 27th. Adverse weather conditions and illegal lane change appear to have caused the crash.
According to a news report, just after 10 p.m., a 24-year-old male drove an Audi A4 east on Detroit Road from W. 25th Street over the Detroit-Superior Bridge during heavy snowfall. The Cleveland Police said that the car went left of the center into the westbound lanes of the roadway. The vehicle then struck the front of a GCRTA bus.
A 23-year-old male in the Audi sustained a severe wound and died at the hospital. A 24-year-old female passenger in the car also sustained severe wounds and received treatment in a hospital. Another passenger, a 27-year-old male, suffered minor injuries. The vehicle’s driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The bus driver and five passengers did not sustain any injury. However, the cause of the Detroit-Superior Bridge collision remains under investigation.
When a motor vehicle accident occurs, those involved either suffer injuries or die. Auto crash injuries can be minor or severe, and the latter could lead to a disability for the injured party. This is why Ohio law allows accident victims to get compensation from the fault party. They can do this by filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
If the victim’s claim succeeds, they will get economic and non-economic damages. Where a victim dies, Ohio law allows their legal beneficiaries to obtain compensation by filing a wrongful death claim. Filing either of these claims is easier when you work with an Ohio car accident lawyer. Contact us at Young, Reverman, and Mazzei to speak with one of our attorneys today.
