A 48-year-old truck driver from Indianapolis is facing charges in connection with an Indiana Truck Accident that left two people critically injured. Reports indicate the crash happened Sunday evening at the corner of Indiana 37 and West Vernal Pike in Bloomington, Indiana.
According to an article released by the Herald Times Online, the truck driver was operating a 2011 Peterbilt 382 tractor-trailer southbound along Ind. 37 when she was unable to stop for a red light at the intersection with West Vernal. The truck skid toward the intersection and slammed into the rear of a 2001 Toyota Camry sedan.
The impact forced the vehicles to strike a 2007 Cadillac Escalade before coming to a halt.
The 45-year-old female driving the Camry was rushed to a local hospital along with the 14-year-old passenger in the vehicle.
The driver allegedly responsible for the crash stated to officers she was not feeling well and had no recollection of the crash. Officers conducted testing to determine if alcohol or drugs were potential factors, but results showed they were not.
The driver has since been charged with disregard for an automatic signal, following too closely, and driving too fast to avoid a collision.
