On October 16, 2014, a passenger car was involved in a serious collision with a semi tractor trailer. According to witnesses, the passenger car was driving aggressively and above the posted speed limit on I-465 by Mann Road. The semi was attempting to move into the breakdown lane with his flashers on to check on a possible mechanical issue. The passenger car collided into the rear end of the semi tractor trailer. The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported to Eskenazi Hospital in serious condition. Too often we hear about these types of occurrences on the roadways however, most collisions are preventable. Drivers should obey the posted speed limit and utilize a defensive driving approach. Unfortunately, utilizing these precautionary measures will not fully protect you from the negligence of others. If you have been a victim of someone else’s negligence please call Schiller Law Offices for a free consultation.
