The snow and ice falling across Central Indiana still isn’t letting up. In fact, it some cases it just seems to be getting worse. With all these wintery conditions, accidents are piling up across the state. Interstate 69 and 465 have become some of the most dangerous areas, and as accident lawyers in Indianapolis we want to make sure you’re being safe while you’re traveling on these highways during harsh conditions.
Just last week an astonishing 47 wrecks occurred within just five hours on Indy’s northeast side. These weren’t just minor fender benders either. At least one person was killed in an accident in Morgan County along I-70.
Indiana State Police believe it’s the simple matter of people driving too fast. According to one trooper, “People think that because they can see the pavement that they are okay driving 50 or 60 miles per hour. When they change lanes and get through the slush, they just lose control and they are hitting the walls.”
Crews have been doing everything they can to help make the roads safer. This includes plowing and salting roads, but there are still many spots that remain dangerous especially in rural areas. It really comes down to drivers taking personal responsibility for their safety and driving with extra caution when encountering icy roads.
