Even when a crash is deemed preventable due to the actions of the at-fault driver, it does not mean the driver's actions were intentional. Ohio residents may get drunk and then drive, but that does not mean they intended to get into accidents -- it simply means that the driver recklessly increased the risk of one through his or her actions. On the other hand, there are times when car accidents are not accidental.
School is out, and you and your family are probably enjoying the Ohio summer days. You make the most of this time because it won't be long before school is back in session and the snow starts to fall. Whether you are at the local park or in your own front yard, you take certain precautions to protect your children. They wear bike helmets and sunscreen, and you make sure they play where you can watch them.
At some point, every driver, whether here in Ohio or elsewhere, sees the flashing lights of ambulances, police cars and fire trucks. It does not take much to realize this means an accident occurred and one or more of those involved suffered injuries. Just as the presence of other emergency vehicles indicates a crash, the presence of a medical helicopter at the scene of some car accidents means someone suffered severe injuries and may be close to death.
