Commentary on Head-On Crash on Midland Rd in Ohioville

There aren't many clear details here yet, but a glance at Midland Road shows it's just a single lane headed either direction split by a double-yellow line. If two vehicles crashed head-on along that stretch of road, the most logical way that would happen is if one driver or the other crossed left of center. If so then among all the other things to learn about this wreck there are two urgent questions to answer as soon as possible: Who crossed over and why?

To be sure the right answers are found investigators should look for every fact they can find. What does the electronic data from each vehicle say about their speeds and braking? Do debris analysis and tire markings give a more accurate picture of what occurred? Could someone have suffered a medical emergency and lost control? What condition were the vehicles in, and could a damaged or defective part on either have contributed to the crash? What was visibility like in the area? What about road conditions? Weather? Could someone have been distracted? If so, what had their attention? Were there any witnesses?
