When a car is involved in a motor vehicle accident, its driver and its passengers can suffer serious or fatal injuries. Consequently, it is important for all motorists to practice safe and careful driving. Recently, a deadly car accident occurred in Indiana.
The accident happened last Friday in Indianapolis. That evening, a 22-year-old woman from Indianapolis was driving a car along Zionsville Road. A 26-year-old man and an infant were passengers of this vehicle.
The woman then lost control of the car and collided with a vehicle which was travelling in the opposite direction. Police are still investigating what caused this accident. They do not believe that the road was slick at the time of the collision. They also do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
The 26-year-old man was killed in the accident. The infant was thrown from the car as a result of the collision and is currently in stable condition. The 22-year-old woman suffered serious injuries from the crash and is currently in critical condition.
This collision illustrates how car accidents can cause serious or fatal injuries. These accidents can be particularly harmful when they involve two vehicles that are going in opposite directions.
Thus, it is important for all motorists to drive safely when out on the roads. Drivers should make sure to always obey all relevant traffic laws and avoid taking actions which would interfere with other vehicles. If motorists fail to do these things, they could be putting themselves and others at risk.
