A massive snowstorm swept through a large portion of Indiana last week, covering much of Southern Indiana’s roads with dangerous snow and ice. Travel advisories were issued for several counties and for good reason, as dozens of cars accidents, some fatal, resulted from the wintery conditions. As injury lawyers in Indianapolis, we know that accidents that result in injuries can change lives forever and want to do what we can to help you avoid serious accidents.
From the time the storm started last Thursday to a report on Sunday, the Indiana State Police were called to 126 wrecks, and that doesn’t even include hundreds of more calls from motorists who were stuck or broken down. One of the most tragic accidents involved a tractor trailer whose driver lost control on the icy roads. His semi careened over the median and struck another vehicle, taking the life of its driver. Another fatal accident occurred when a driver lost control and wound up in a four-vehicle collision.
This weather isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and we unfortunately haven’t seen the last of accidents that will follow. We just want to stress how important it is to take your time while traveling. Give yourself plenty of space around other vehicles and be on the lookout for patches of ice. With the Holidays approaching we want everyone to enjoy them without being worried about being injured in an accident.
