Symmes, OH (August 23, 2021) – Emergency crews were requested to provide assistance at the scene of an accident on Saturday evening that ended in injuries. At approximately 8:14 p.m., on August 21, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a cash on Fields Ertel Road.

Reports from local authorities show that a gray 2009 Ford Escape was traveling on Fields Ertel Road during the evening hours. At this time, a silver 2000 Toyota 4-Runner was located on Escort Drive. As the Ford passed through the red light at the intersection, it collided with the Toyota. 

The front-seat passenger in the Toyota, a 25-year-old female, was injured in the accident. At this time, the incident remains under investigation. 

Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Hamilton County, Ohio

Each year, more than 66,000 car accidents take place in the state of Ohio. These accidents send tens of thousands of people to area hospitals where they have to go through emergency medical services for their injuries. Many victims are rushed to undergo surgery and have to spend days or even weeks in hospitals to recover. 

These and various other life-threatening injuries have multiple treatment options available. However, there is no guarantee that injured parties will ever truly recover from their injuries. In fact, motor vehicle accidents across the state of Ohio leave thousands of victims permanently disabled each year.

Some of the main causes of crashes in our state include drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, motorists who are distracted by cell phones and other objects, and drivers who are engaging in reckless driving behaviors.
