Tallmadge, OH (January 31, 2024) – Emergency crews across Summit County were called to help at the scene of a car crash that took place late Monday evening and ended in injuries. The incident occurred just before midnight on January 29.
According to reports provided by local news sources, a semi-truck tractor-trailer and two cars collided on Interstate 76 during the early morning hours. The force of the collision caused the truck to go off the roadway, where it entered a wooded area before it finally came to a stop. The incident prompted the closure of the westbound lanes of travel near Southeast Avenue. Two people were injured in the crash. Medical personnel transported both of the victims to area hospitals for emergency care. At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope both of the injured victims recover quickly.
Trying to overcome the physical and emotional injuries caused by a truck accident can be quite challenging. Seeking compensation can be even more difficult if you do not have the right evidence. Unfortunately, failing to act in a timely manner can result in the loss of video footage that is collected by the Ohio Department of Transportation. In most cases, this footage is deleted within 72 hours of recording. When it comes to footage collected by commercial buildings, the time is often even less. For this reason, it is imperative that you act quickly to reach out to us after being harmed in an accident to ensure you have the evidence you need for your case.
