The Indiana Car Accident Attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain that the changes in traffic patterns caused by construction zones can prove to be extremely dangerous to motorists’ safety. In fact, the Indiana Department of Transportation found that a total of 11 fatalities resulting from construction zone crashes were recorded in 2012 alone. Furthermore, four out of five of those victims were determined to be drivers or passengers in vehicles.
One such accident occurred just last week and was responsible for leaving four people, including two children, seriously injured. According to an article from The Tribune-Star, the driver of a 2007 Ford Explorer SUV carrying two children, ages 3-and 7-years-old, was traveling southbound along U.S. Highway 41 in Vigo County when she failed to slow for construction zone traffic and collided with the rear-end of a 2013 Honda Pilot. The Pilot then veered into a Ford Contour before coming to a halt.
The driver of the Explorer suffered serious injuries to her head, chest, and leg, while the children suffered less severe injuries. The driver of the Pilot also suffered injuries. All four were taken to local hospitals for further examination.
The law firm’s team of Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers is aware of how devastating injuries from a car accident can be and encourage anyone who has been injured in a crash caused by another motorist’s negligence to discuss their legal options with an attorney.
