West Lafayette, IN (August 26, 2023) – A fatal truck accident reported in West Lafayette on Friday claimed one woman’s life.
The accident occurred at around 415 p.m. on August 25.
According to reports provided by the West Lafayette Police Department, a collision between two vehicles took place on Robinson Street in the area near Dehart Street. The impact of the crash sent one of the vehicles back into the traffic lanes, where it collided with a semi-truck.
A woman involved in the accident suffered fatal injuries. She was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Tippecanoe County Coroner’s Office.
The West Lafayette Police Department is investigating the crash.
Our sympathies go out to the family of the woman who died in this accident.
Every day, people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Indiana. Reports from 2022 show that nearly 100 people lost their lives in collisions across the state. These accidents are often caused by distracted, reckless, and drowsy drivers. When people engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles, they are likely to cause life-changing accidents for those involved. Unfortunately, accidents involving tractor-trailers are more likely to result in severe and fatal injuries.
Losing a loved one in an accident can be difficult to deal with. This is especially true when these accidents claim the lives of young children. Fatal accidents often leave families to endure the mental, emotional, and financial consequences. Quite often, families have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses and other end-of-life expenses.
Although there is nothing that can bring back the lives of those taken away suddenly and unexpectedly, working with a fatal truck accident lawyer can provide families with legal avenues to collect compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face moving forward.
