Cincinnati Injury Lawyer On Fatal Crash Man Baby Killed

Car Crash Butler County
A fatal car crash in Butler County, Ohio killed two people . One was 24 year old Mathew Hale and another death was an 11 month old. This happened this past Thursday, July 26, 2012.

Sheriff deputies from Butler County are investigating the auto and pick up truck crash. The police state that
Kathleen York was driving a Chevy Malibu on Keister Road and failed to stop at a stop sign before entering Ohio 4.  She struck the pick up truck driven by Robert Broshear that was traveling south on route 4.

Mathew Hale and a 11 month old , passengers in the York vehicle were killed. There was also a 2 year old injured as well as both drivers.

If you happened to have witnessed the accident please make sure the Butler County Sherriff's office is notified.


Fatal car crashes are so emotional and so life altering. Multiple families will never be the same. Apart from the legal issues , both criminal and civil, the emotional toll on the survivors and next of kin of those killed
can lead to severe emotional illness. Traumatic loss experts can help people put their life back together in time so at least they can function . But life will still never be the same again.

Police say that there have been other crashes at this intersection. The stop signs appear to sit back from the intersection. But it is not known why Kathleen York failed to yield the right away. Although they say she failed to stop, whether the car stopped or not does not change the legal implications.

From the description of the car truck crash it sounds as if the semi-tuck driver violated the assured clear distance statute. A violation occurs when a motor vehicle driver strikes a vehicle in front of him, in the same lane of travel, that is visible. R.C. 4511.21 The defense is that it was impossible to comply with the statute. That is why the other vehicles should not be at fault. However multiple vehicle collisions can be fraught with legal and factual issues.Right now I'm involved with a 16 car pileup. 

You can only hope that the police document the scene with a Total Station and take clear photographs. I've seen some great investigative reports and some inadequate ones. Also in the case of a tractor trailer, there can be other issues such as sleep deprived driving as well as insurance coverage issues.  With  multiple vehicles, it is a good idea to check your own insurance policy for sources of compensation.

Cincinnati Auto Crash Pedestian and Two Others Injured

Car Wreck Cincinnati 
A two vehicle auto crash was reported today by . The crash occurred at the intersection of Henry and Dunlap. Apparently the stop sign controlling traffic at Henry Street in Cincinnati was missing and a police cruiser and another car entered the intersection at the same time.

The pedestrians apparently were struck due to the movement of the cars after the collision. Police are still investigating. The two drivers and the pedestrian were taken to the hospital.


So who is responsible for this accident? I can see every one proclaiming their innocence. The big question is how long had that  stop sign been down and who took it down.
