Two women were killed in a car accident Sunday while they were standing at the side of the road waiting for their car’s tire to be fixed. The accident occurred on I-480 at the Route 82 exit.
The Plain Dealer reports that
Police said the accident occurred around 11:40 a.m. when two women were standing outside their vehicle on the side of the road about as a tow truck driver repaired a flat tire. Suddenly, another vehicle traveling westbound apparently lost control and struck the women and their vehicle, according to police reports.
Three others were injured in the collision.
This sad tragedy reminds us that caution needs to be used at all times when a person is near traffic, be it at the edge of the highway or city streets.
