Alcohol is considered a contributing factor in two Terre Haute, Indiana, automobile accidents that left two victims seriously injured. According to WTHITV 10 News, the crash occurred around 11:00 p.m. Tuesday at the corner of Hulman and 17th Streets.

Reports indicate that Terre Haute police officers were originally called to the scene regarding an accident between a vehicle and a motorcycle carrying two passengers. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield to the motorcycle at the intersection and collided with it. The impact ejected the two riders from the bike and left them seriously injured. They were taken to a local hospital to receive treatment while the driver of the vehicle was arrested on charges of driving under the influence after failing field sobriety tests.

Meanwhile, as police worked the scene of the crash, a man on a moped collided with one of the police squad cars nearby and was thrown from the vehicle. The rider was not hurt, but was arrested by officers under the suspicion of driving under the influence as well.

Drinking and driving is a leading cause for Indianapolis Auto Accidents. That’s why the Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers ask that all motorists do their part to keep Indiana’s highways safe by never getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Instead, call a cab or a trusted friend or family member to get you home safely.
