Indianapolis Truck Accident Leaves Woman Seriously Injured

A 27-year-old Indianapolis, Indiana, woman was seriously injured this morning after her SUV was struck by a tractor-trailer. According to FOX 59 News, the crash happened just after 9:30 a.m.at the intersection of Brookville and Davis Roads on the southeast side of town.

Indianapolis Police Department reports indicate that the woman was attempting to turn south onto Davis Road in her Chevy Equinox but soon realized that the road was closed. As she attempted to merge back into the right lane, her vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer, trapping the woman inside the mangled wreckage caused by the Indianapolis Truck Accident.

Rescue crews worked frantically to cut the woman free from her vehicle. She was taken to a local hospital to receive treatment for her injuries. A firefighter on the scene suffered heat exhaustion and was taken to the hospital for observation.

Investigators are still determining what factors may have caused the accident; however, statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration show that truck driver error is ten times more likely to be the cause of a crash than any other factor.

The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers say that truck drivers operate under a completely different set of rules and standards than most drivers are accustomed to. That firm suggests exploring your legal options if you have been hurt in a truck accident that was no fault of your own.
