The father of a 19-year-old girl who was killed in an Indiana Motorcycle Accident is going to great lengths ensure someone is held responsible for the loss of his daughter.

According to a story published by WANE News, at around 11 a.m. on June 23, 2011, the girl was riding on the rear of a Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle driven by a 20-year-old male. The pair were heading southbound along Hillegas Road when the 42-year-old driver of a northbound pickup truck slowed to make a left turn from Hillegas onto Goshen Road.

The motorcyclist hit the pickup, which threw the female passenger over his back. The impact with the asphalt left the girl with serious injuries that claimed her life a short time later.

The motorcyclist did not have a proper license to operate the vehicle at the time of the accident, and the pickup failed to yield to the right-of-way of the motorcycle. Despite these facts, no tickets have been issued to either man in connection with the incident.

The lack of action has forced the father to file a lawsuit in his daughter’s name, as well as to hire a private crash reconstruction expert in order to hold someone responsible.

The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys wish the father the best of luck in his endeavors to get justice for his daughter.
