Dayton, OH (December 21, 2023) – A vehicle collision reported in Dayton on Wednesday morning left at least one person injured. The accident was reported to law enforcement at approximately 5:45 a.m. on December 20.
According to reports provided by the Dayton Police Department, a silver 2023 Honda Venue was heading southbound on Cincinnati Road. For unknown reasons, the vehicle became involved in a collision with a white 2004 Stoutbilt semi-truck tractor-trailer. The incident prompted authorities to close down the roadway near Edwin C Moses Boulevard.

Car Accidents in Ohio
Every year, millions of people are involved in automobile accidents in the United States that result in injuries. Here in Ohio, we see tens of thousands of people forced to undergo extensive medical treatment due to injuries they suffer in motor vehicle accidents. Some common injuries reported in collisions include:
- Broken bones: Victims who suffer broken bones in automobile accidents often have to go through therapy and rehabilitation. Victims also have to wear casts and use crutches or wheelchairs for several weeks following their accidents.
- Head injuries: Injuries to the head can be severe. In some cases, these injuries can result in concussions, while more serious injuries can result in traumatic brain injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
- Spinal cord injuries: This type of injury can be incredibly devastating as it often results in paralysis. Depending on the type and location of the injury, victims may lose their ability to use their arms and legs or just their legs, either permanently or temporarily.
Regrettably, there are many instances where people are hurt in accidents due to the negligence of others. Leading factors in crashes include:
- Drunk driving
- Poor weather conditions
- Running red lights
- Reckless driving
