The family of the late Daniel Vincent of Aurora has filed a complaint for wrongful death after a fatal accident that occurred in 2013.

According to court documents, around 11:30 PM on November 29 of that year, Vincent was driving his Chevrolet Cobalt on Route 8 northbound towards the 10.2 mile marker. (Court of Common Pleas, Summit County, Ohio, CV-2015-01-0196)

According to court documents, defendant James R. Gehring had been employed by defendant Kimble Recycling and Disposal as a truck driver for only about two weeks. Although the Seasons Road exit ramp was only about a mile ahead and offered ample safe parking room, Gehring pulled over onto the dark shoulder of the highway to attempt to fix defective tail lights on a trailer being driven by a fellow employee.

According to court documents, Gehring pulled back onto the highway and into the path of Vincent’s vehicle. Vincent’s car struck the truck and spun across the lanes of traffic and into the median, then was struck by another car.

Vincent, then 34, was severely injured in the crash and was pronounced dead at Akron City Hospital.

The Vincent Family is represented by Ohio personal injury/wrongful death lawyer Laura L. Mills, a managing member of the firm Mills, Mills, Fiely & Lucas LLC.

A Kimble representative was at the scene the night of the fatal accident and wanted to know when they could get their trucks back on the road.
