On the morning of May 4th, 2020 a Noblesville High School senior lost his leg and was placed in a coma after being struck by a semi-truck on I-69 near Fishers, Indiana. The student was involved in a minor collision and pulled off onto the side of I-69 to talk with the other driver involved when a semi-truck struck the two vehicles. The student was standing outside of the other vehicle and was exchanging information with the driver when the semi-truck came and hit his and the other motorist’s vehicle. According to the police report, the Fishers Police believe that neither alcohol nor drugs played a factor in the collision. The student had suffered injuries to his limbs, broken bones in his ribs and hips, and a spinal fracture. The doctors then decided to amputate one of his legs below the knee. The other driver did not get injured.
There are many safety hazards on interstates, especially to the cars that are pulled over onto the shoulders of interstates, roads, or highways. A shoulder is a place for emergency stop, and other drivers are supposed to move over into the far lane or in any way possible in order to guarantee the safety of the vehicles that are pulled over.
