Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

1 dead, several injured in crash prompted by police chase

When the police know that they're chasing a party and that the individual could enter an intersection or busy area, they usually stop the chase. They don't want to put others at risk of getting hurt.

Even after they call off a chase, there's a chance that the person fleeing won't stop. If that happens, there's a risk that he or she could impact others on the roads by speeding, recklessly driving or being too distracted behind the wheel. In those situations, the victims have little they can do but to seek compensation for the injuries they suffer.

A fatal accident has been linked to a police chase that occurred in Indianapolis, according to a report from April 5. The report indicates that there was a man fleeing from police who entered an intersection and struck a black BMW SUV. The driver continued on to strike a GMC before coming to a blazing halt. The vehicle, which was on fire at that point, contained two people. One, the driver, was a 37-year-old man. The other, a 32-year-old man, was killed in the crash.

The police claim that the driver had been involved in a heroin transaction just moments before starting a police chase that led to this fatal crash. In total, four people had to be hospitalized following the crash, which likely could have been avoided had the suspect pulled over when the Iowa State Troopers attempted to stop him.

Two of the victims in the collision were taken to the hospital with nonlife-threatening, but serious, injuries. Two others were reported as having nonlife-threatening injuries.

Seeking compensation after someone else causes a serious accident can be complex. An attorney can help simplify the process.
