Woman killed in fatal motor vehicle accident in Indiana

A 22-year-old woman was tragically killed in a four-car crash, according to state police. The fatal motor vehicle accident occurred just before 4 p.m. on May 22. Indiana police have not filed charges against anyone involved in the crash at this time, but their investigation is ongoing as of this report.

According to police, the woman was visiting from out of state when the accident occurred. A big rig operated by a 21-year-old man rear-ended the woman's SUV with enough force to push the vehicle under the semi ahead of her. The driver who was killed was reported deceased at the scene once first responders arrived.

Her passenger, a 25-year-old woman, was rushed to a local hospital with injuries described as non-life threatening. The driver of the semi was apparently driving too fast for the conditions on the road at the time of the crash, given traffic was backed up for some six miles. Police say he was traveling too fast to avoid the collision. While he was cited for speeding, he has not yet faced more serious charges.

It is possible that Indiana authorities will decide to press more charges against him as their investigation into this fatal motor vehicle accident continues. Even if no criminal charges are filed, the family of the deceased woman and the injured passenger will be entitled to file wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits against the driver and possibly his employer in civil court. If enough evidence of his negligence exists, both claims could result in a court finding in favor of the plaintiffs.
