When you get into an auto accident with another vehicle, especially in a big city like Indianapolis, the aftermath can be a nightmare. Emergency crews have to show up and assess the scene for any injuries and provide care if there are any. Cleanup crews then have to come in and remove the damaged vehicles so that traffic can resume. Then, it’s up to investigators to decide who was at fault and if any criminal charges apply. All in all it’s a big process.
Now imagine if instead of two cars it was six, and you’re picturing what happened on I-69 Friday afternoon. According to reports it all started when a car was rear-ended as it slowed down for traffic that was backed-up. That car was then pushed into the back of another. The chain reaction continued as three more vehicles swerved off the road in an attempt to avoid being involved in the pile-up themselves.
By the time the last car careened off the road six people were injured in the accident, including children and two pregnant women. Medical helicopters were brought in to transfer some of the wounded, and all northbound lanes of I-69 had to be closed.
Fortunately no lives were lost in the massive accident, but there’s no doubt it will have a lasting affect on those involved.
