Grant County was the setting for not one, but two major truck accidents over the weekend. The wrecks shared many similarities – both occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 69 and were rear-ending collisions. But ultimately all accidents are unique with a variety of differences. The only true consistency is that accident victims and their families will be affected for a long time to come.
Sunday afternoon, a woman and her two children were driving down I-69 when a congested construction zone caused them to slow down. As the mother hit the brakes, the semi-truck behind her didn’t. The truck smashed into her car with enough force to push it forward into another vehicle. It was also with enough force to leave the woman and her children with injuries. The truck driver walked away physically unscathed but did find himself cited for driving too fast to avoid an accident.
Sunday afternoon’s accident was certainly scary for the family involved, but thankfully they left the crash site with their lives. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case in the Indiana truck accident that occurred on Friday afternoon. In this instance it was the tractor trailer that slowed down for congested traffic, and the other driver that failed to hit the brakes. The driver smashed into the back of the semi and was killed on impact.
