Rain makes driving more hazardous, and drivers must be especially careful in these conditions. Unfortunately, some young drivers in Ohio fail to follow warnings about speeding in adverse weather conditions. Devastating car accidents can result.
On Ohio 7, where the speed limit is 55 miles per hour, a teenage driver’s speed reached as high as 74 miles per hour. It was raining and he lost control of the vehicle, which crashed into an SUV that was headed in the opposite direction. The driver of the other vehicle, an elementary school teacher, was killed, and her 2-year-old grandson suffered serious injuries. According to the young boy’s mother, the injuries that resulted from the accident will limit his mobility for the rest of his life.
