An 82-year-old Indianapolis woman was seriously injured as the result of a recent motor vehicle accident. According to an article from The Indianapolis Star, the crash happened on Sept. 20 around 4 p.m. at the corner of North Shadeland Avenue and East 16th Street.
Reports indicate the elderly victim was driving a Mercury Milan sedan northbound along Shadeland Avenue. As she approached the intersection to turn left, a southbound tow truck driven by a 50-year-old Indianapolis man struck the victim’s vehicle.
The driver of the Mercury had to be cut free from the wreckage before being transported to a hospital for treatment. She remains in critical condition following the Indianapolis Auto Accident. A passenger from the tow truck was also taken to a hospital to be examined after complaining of back pain.
While the truck driver maintained he had a green light and the woman turned in front of him, witnesses contradicted his story by saying he was the one who ran the red traffic signal.
Officers with the Indianapolis Police Department said they are investigating what contributing factors may have led to the accident.
The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers understand how difficult the days following an accident can be for the victim and would like to wish the woman who was injured a full and speedy recovery!
