Due to the sheer physics involved in head-on collisions, the resulting injuries are typically severe and catastrophic. All too often, head-on collisions result in fatal injuries. Tragically, such was the case in January 2014 when three, 16-year-old teenagers were killed in a violent crash with a fire truck on a Saturday night in Hancock County, W.Va., in the state’s northern panhandle. The three firefighters were treated at the hospital and released. I have been seated across the table with families far too many times as they are experiencing the greatest sorrow of their lives. “If only…” is everyone’s recurring thought.
Sheriff’s officials said the fire truck was traveling north on State Route 8 near Tomlinson Run State Park, responding to a call about a chimney fire at about 9 p.m., when a southbound vehicle pulled into the northbound lane in an attempt to pass another vehicle. The driver was unable to return to the southbound lane and collided with the fire truck from the New Manchester VFD.
