3 dead after serious car accident in Indiana

A serious car crash in Versailles has left three people dead, including a 3-year-old girl. Indiana State Police say the two-car accident happened early in the morning of April 5. Thankfully, one person was able to survive the crash.

According to the accident report, around 1:30 a.m. a 31-year-old man apparently ignored a stop sign in negotiating a turn, which put his car in the path of an oncoming semi truck. The driver and his two passengers, a 31-year-old woman and a 3-year-old girl, were all killed in the accident. It appears the woman and child may have been related, though their relationship to the driver was unclear.

The driver of the semi truck, a 37-year-old man, was trapped in the truck before authorities were able to free him. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and has since been released. The extent of his injuries is unknown at this time, but it is clear police have no intention of charging him for his role in the accident.

When the driver at fault for a car accident is killed in the crash, it can be easy to feel as though justice cannot be done for the other victims involved. However, here in Indiana, both the families of the deceased passengers and the other driver involved are entitled by law to file civil suits against the driver's estate: wrongful death and personal injury claims, respectively. Such suits seek to hold the estate accountable for the damages caused by the driver's actions.
