Two injured in Terre Haute auto accident
September 23rd, 2010|
The Tribune Star reports that two people were injured in a Terre Haute auto accident.
The single vehicle accident happened when the 82 year-old driver failed to slow down for stopped traffic in a construction zone. The driver swerved to avoid hitting the traffic and traveled down an embankment before coming to stop near some railroad tracks.
Both the driver and an occupant were transported to the hospital complaining of pain from the Terre Haute auto accident.
Do you think there should be higher penalties for Terre Haute auto accidents caused in construction zones? These are work sites, and there is often a greater potential for a worker to get injured. Do you think there should be more accountability for drivers who disregard posted speed limits?
