Deadly Intersection Crashes in Ohio
Crossing an intersection can be dangerous. By design, intersections are a point on the road where the paths of multiple vehicles converge, creating the potential for a serious collision. The majority of these accidents are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right of way, and statistics show that nearly 61% of intersection collisions involve drivers who make left-hand turns. The Federal Highway Administration reports that there are nearly 2.5 million intersection crashes reported each year, accounting for nearly 20% of fatal car accidents nationwide.
