Cincinnati, OH (August 30, 2021) – One person has lost their life and a second victim was left injured following a crash on Saturday morning in the Cincinnati area. At around 9 a.m., on August 28, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on Interstate 71.

Reports from local authorities show that a collision occurred on the southbound side of the interstate in the area of Ridge Road during the morning hours. The crash resulted in a vehicle going off the side of the road and crashing into a pole and a tree. The vehicle then rolled over onto its side.

A 14-year-old inside the car was partially ejected from the vehicle. The teen sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. A second victim, a 13-year-old, was transported to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation. 

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

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Cincinnati, Ohio

Every year, tens of thousands of people are injured in life-altering automobile collisions across the state of Ohio. These accidents often force people into area hospitals for emergency medical attention. Although there are many treatment options available for victims, there is never a guarantee that victims will completely recover. In fact, many victims are forced to deal with permanent disabilities and pain and suffering. Although we hope that all victims involved in accidents are able to recover from their injuries, this is far from the truth.

More than 1,000 people lose their lives in auto accidents in Ohio each year. These accidents are often preventable, yet we continue to witness the overwhelming consequences they have on families throughout the state. Not only are families overcome by emotional pain and suffering, but they are often forced to spend thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and other costs. When victims lose their lives in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, their families should seek legal guidance from a competent wrongful death attorney in Ohio as soon as possible.
