Six Injured In Multi-Vehicle Terre Haute Accident

March 7, 2012

A traffic accident that was caused by a driver fleeing from police may have caused several injuries, but it also brought out the best in the witnesses. According to reports from WTHITV 10 News, the accident happened last Wednesday at 9:46 a.m. at the intersection of South 13th and Crawford Streets in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Video footage of the incident taken from a nearby store’s surveillance camera shows a pickup truck plow through three vehicles, including a Ford Mustang that burst into flames when its fuel tank ruptured, with a police car in pursuit. The footage then shows the pickup truck leaving the scene of the accident.

Witnesses and those who were involved in the collision rushed to the aid of a woman trapped inside the burning Mustang, all of whom showed courage by working to free the woman despite the danger the burning vehicle posed. Rescuers were eventually able to extinguish the flames and cut the woman free from the wreckage.

In all, six people were injured in the accident and taken to a local hospital to receive treatment.

Charges could be filed against the driver of the pickup truck pending the outcome of a full investigation into the crash.
