Indianapolis truck accident lawyers fight for those injured by big trucks.
An accident last week showed just how much destruction a tractor trailer and a train can cause, especially when they collide with one another. Fortunately, the collision that occurred at the crossing of North Rural Street and Massachusetts Avenue didn’t leave anyone injured, but it was a very bad day to be a pineapple.
According to police reports, a semi-truck was attempting to turn onto Massachusetts Avenue when it got hung up on the railroad tracks. The timing couldn’t have been worse because a train was quickly approaching. Unable to stop in time, the train smashed into the tractor trailer in a collision that was powerful enough to rumble nearby houses. Some even believed their homes were being vandalized.
When bystanders and crews arrived on the scene, they found a lot of wreckage. The train belonged to the Department of Defense and was transporting cargo through Indianapolis. Federal officers arrived on the scene, but the cargo didn’t seem to be damaged. The same can’t be said for what the semi-truck was transporting. Hundreds and hundreds of pineapples were covering the road and train tracks.
Again, no one was hurt in the accident, which is a really good thing to hear, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. Usually in a serious accident that involves just a big truck or just a train there ends up being injuries, let alone an accident that involves both. As Indianapolis truck accident lawyers, we know that there is usually more than just pineapples at stake.
