Rear End Crash Injures Two Women at Morris
Motor vehicle accidents are a daily occurrence on Indiana highways. Last week, two women suffered serious head, back and neck injuries when their Oldsmobile Alero was rear-ended by a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee at State Road 46 and Morris.
The driver of the Oldsmobile Alero was slowing down to make a right turn into a private driveway, when the speeding Jeep Grand Cherokee crashed into the car from the rear. While the driver and the co-passenger in the front seat suffered injuries, surprisingly, three children riding in the back seat escaped the accident unharmed. The police cited the driver of the Jeep Grand Cherokee for driving too close to the vehicle in front of it.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in most cases, the vehicle at the rear is accused of driving too close. The law makes each driver responsible for driving his or her vehicles safely, and failing to maintain sufficient distance or failure to stop in time, constructs negligence.
Victims of rear-end crashes can sue for damages, but it is important to state your case well and firm evidence that the car behind you was at fault for the injuries and damages you sustained.
