Four people suffered injuries in a Gary drunk driving accident, according to The Northwest Indiana Times.
The 19-year-old driver was traveling at a high rate of speed on the interstate when his Mazda rear-ended a flat bed truck carrying a load of lumber.
The vehicle became lodged under the truck following the Gary auto accident. Three of the occupants had to be removed from the vehicle by firefighters. The driver of the car was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and consumption by a minor.
Three of the vehicle occupants were charged with public intoxication. One passenger left the scene of the Gary auto accident before police arrived.
At least one person in the vehicle was cited earlier in the evening for possession of alcohol by a minor by a U.S. park ranger at the beach at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Do you think the U.S. park ranger should have done more to stop the minors in possession of alcohol? Do you think it would have prevented the Gary auto accident?
