Indiana Car Accident Lawyers Discuss Tipton County Crash Involving Three Teens

Indiana Car Accident Lawyers Discuss Tipton County Crash Involving Three Teens

Three teens were traveling in a vehicle early in the morning on Saturday, August 15, when it left the road and crashed in Tipton County. The accident occurred at approximately 4:15 a.m. on North Tipton County Road, according to Fox 59 News.

Motorist Allegedly Loses Control

The preliminary investigation suggests that the 17-year-old male motorist was northbound in a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu when the vehicle veered off the west side of the road. The driver reportedly over-corrected, and this maneuver caused the vehicle to swerve back across the oncoming lane and off the road where it crashed into a tree.

Injuries and Loss of Life

The impact occurred on the driver’s side, and the motorist did not survive. Emergency personnel airlifted a 13-year-old male passenger to a Fort Wayne hospital. A 14-year-old male passenger that allegedly ran from the scene was not injured. All three occupants were wearing seat belts. Troopers believe that the use of seat belts may have reduced the severity of any injuries suffered by the passengers.

Speed and Alcohol Possible Factors

The preliminary investigation suggests that excessive speed and alcohol allegedly contributed to the wreck. Although the investigation into this accident is ongoing, victims of some crashes can seek redress in the state’s civil court system. Injured victims often file lawsuits that claim that negligent conduct contributed or caused their injuries. In such instances, it is common to seek compensation for medical bills, pain-and-suffering and lost wages.
