If a doctor is charged with liability, do you think his license should be automatically suspended?
A local doctor has been charged in the Terre Haute wrongful death of one of his patients, reports WTHI-TV.
The doctor is accused of prescribing narcotics to patients with a history of drug abuse. According to officials, he would have patients undergo invasive procedures they didn’t need to get the prescription drugs.
One patient with a history of drug abuse died from narcotic use prescribed by this doctor. The doctor has been indicted for charges related to fraud and other bodily injuries.
As investigation continues, the doctor’s medical license is still active. Do you think it shows negligence on the part of the state that this doctor is still practicing?

A pile-up on Interstate 70 after a six-vehicle Terre Haute truck accident has sent eight people to the hospital.
WTHI TV reports that the six-vehicle Terre Haute truck accident occurred when a semi-truck crashed into the other vehicles in slow-moving traffic.
Of the eight people who were injured, one was airlifted to Indianapolis to be treated for more serious injuries as a result of the Terre Haute truck accident. The westbound lanes of I-70 were closed temporarily as crews worked to clean up the Terre Haute truck accident site.
It seems semi trucks are often the culprit in Terre Haute truck accidents on the interstate, sometimes simply due to their size and inability to stop quickly.
How do you feel about semis? Should they have to stay in one lane only? Do you think it would it make a difference if there were separate lanes for cars and trucks?

The Trib Star reports that two people were injured in a Terre Haute auto accident.
The accident occurred as the Indiana driver was traveling westbound on County Road 1200 North. The car went off the south side of the road, and the driver over corrected. The vehicle then went off the north side of the road and struck a utility pole before coming to a stop in the woods.
The 21-year-old Indiana driver and his passenger were transported to hospitals. The passenger suffered a head trauma, but is listed in stable condition following the Terre Haute auto accident.
Overcorrecting a vehicle is something most Indiana drivers are warned about in driver’s education, but it often happens in the panicked moments of an Indiana auto accident. Do you think driver’s education should be more extensive, or should more real-life simulations be included? Would it have helped prevent an Indiana auto accident like this?
