Multivehicle crash sends 1 to hospital in Indiana

When large trucks are on the roads, there's always a risk of serious or fatal crashes. These large vehicles are harder to stop and control. If one goes out of control, it can leave devastation in its wake.

A pile-up collision involving multiple semitrucks close to Layfayette resulted in minor injuries according to a news report from Aug. 22. This is a perfect example of how a single-vehicle collision can quickly result in a pile-up on the highway. The crash on I-65 near Tippecanoe stopped and slowed traffic while the Indiana State Police addressed the incident.

The Indiana State Police reported that a 1999 Volvo semi had been traveling northbound in a construction area when it jackknifed in the left lane at around 5:40 a.m. That truck, which was driven by a 53-year-old man from Alabama, hit the concrete barrier and forced pieces of the barrier into other surrounding lanes. Another semi that was being driven by a 42-year-old man collided with the first truck at that point.

Since concrete was lying in the roads, it created a hazard for those who couldn't stop in time. Another semi became involved in the collision when the driver was unable to avoid the concrete. There was a female passenger in that vehicle who had to be transported to IU Health for the treatment of suspected minor injuries. All the drivers involved in this collision were evaluated and released by police.

Collisions like this are devastating. Those who are injured have a right to seek compensation from those responsible, so they can get the medical care they need.
