1 dead, 1 hurt in serious accident in Indiana

Police are currently in the process of investigating a car accident in Shelby County that happened around 5:30 p.m. the evening of July 5. Indiana authorities are not yet certain what caused the serious accident that claimed the life of one man and sent a woman to the hospital in critical condition. No charges have yet been filed in association with this case.

According to the police report, a utility truck was headed eastbound on U.S. 52 when it collided with the rear of another vehicle which had stopped in preparation for a turn. The force of the impact spun the struck vehicle into the westbound lanes, where it was hit by another vehicle. Debris from the crash also struck two other vehicles.

The driver of the struck vehicle, a 51-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. A 31-year-old woman was critically injured, and bystanders were reportedly performing CPR when medical professionals arrived. She was airlifted to a local hospital, and her condition remains serious as of this report.

So far, Indiana police have not determined whether recklessness, negligence or intoxication were factors in the serious accident, but their investigation is ongoing. If they determine the driver of the utility truck to be responsible for the crash, they may choose to file criminal charges against him or her. Separately, the family of the deceased man and the injured woman may also choose to file civil suits against the party or parties believed responsible. Personal injury and wrongful death suits are handled in civil court, though evidence used in a related criminal proceeding may be offered to establish civil liability.
