1 Injured in possible distracted driving construction zone crash

Construction zones pose many dangers, and, for this reason, multiple methods are typically used to warn motorists as they approach these dangerous areas. It needs only one case of distracted driving to cause a chain of car accidents that could have catastrophic consequences. The Indiana State Police reported a four-vehicle accident that recently occurred in a construction zone in Johnson County.

An accident report indicates that a multi-vehicle crash happened when traffic came to a halt in a construction zone in the southbound lane of Interstate 65. According to state police, a 40-year-old dump truck driver failed to slow down, and he could not stop before smashing into a stationary passenger vehicle. The 36-year-old driver of this car was airlifted to a hospital with injuries of unknown severity.

The initial impact caused the injured man's car to strike a third vehicle, and flying debris from the crash hit a pickup truck. The dump truck driver, as well as the drivers of the other two vehicles, was reportedly uninjured. Police said further information will be available upon completion of the accident investigation.

Indiana residents who have suffered car accident injuries that were caused by another party's negligence, such as distracted driving, may have to face high medical expenses, and depending on the nature of the injuries, long-term medical care may be required. Litigation may be pursued through the civil court system by filing a personal injury claim. Once liability is established, the court may enter a monetary judgment in compensation for documented financial expenses and emotional damages sustained.
