Five Killed in Geauga County Commercial Vehicle Crash

People in Ohio were shocked by the latest news of a Geauga County commercial vehicle crash that killed five people, while two others were badly injured. Emergency troopers received a call for a serious injury car crash at approximately 11:04 A.M. on November 22, where two vehicles had crashed into each other.

A van and a commercial truck having a connected flatbed trailer were found with severely damaged front-ends at State Route 44, Geauga County, Ohio.

The crash involved a 2003 Ford Econoline Van, which was later verified by authorities to be owned by Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities and rented to Solutions At Work (SAW), Inc., a non-profit that offers jobs, training, and recreational prospects to adults with developmental disabilities.

People involved in the Geauga County commercial vehicle crash crash were also part of a mobile work crew.

According to the Troopers, the van was traveling southbound when the driver intersected the middle lines and collided with a truck heading northbound.

Five people were killed on the spot while two of them were injured badly and moved to the nearest local hospital after two vehicles crashed on State Route 44, South of Pekin Road, in Newbury Township, located in Geauga County, Ohio.

The van had a driver and six passengers in it at the time of the accident.

The driver and four of the passengers died in the crash. Two of the passengers were transported to the local hospital for serious injuries while the driver of the commercial truck was moved for non-life-threatening injuries.

People who have been involved or injured in work accidents or auto accidents while on work, or subjected to workers’ injuries caused by the negligence of others, should contact an Ohio workers’ compensation lawyer for an immediate consultation and a free case review.
