Two Killed In Indiana Truck Accident

June 26, 2013

June 26, 2013

Two people were killed as the result of an Indiana Truck Accident that occurred this week. Records show the crash happened at approximately 7:15 a.m. on Monday morning along the southbound lanes of I-65, outside of Lafayette, Indiana.

According to an article published by The Indy Star, a white tractor-trailer pulled onto the shoulder of the road after becoming disabled. A short time later, a red big-rig pulled in front of the truck so that the load from the first truck could be transferred into the second vehicle.

As the 44- and 31-year-old drivers stood along the edge of the highway though, a tractor-trailer being driven by a 42-year-old man struck the rear end on the white truck and then ran into the two men as well.

The impact left one victim dead at the scene, while the other died shortly after arriving at a local trauma center.

The crash highlights the dangers faced by those who work in the transportation industry each day. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found that transportation accidents were the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the United States in 2012.
