UPDATE: Courtney Crowe Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accident in Greensburg, Indiana

GREENSBURG, IN — One woman was rushed to a hospital after a collision with a tractor-trailer that happened in Greensburg, Indiana on Thursday, May 1st, 2014, according to The Greensburg Daily News.

Police working with local accident investigation teams have reason to believe 24-year-old Courtney Crowe was hurt when the Chrysler Town & Country she was driving was struck by a tractor-trailer that turned into her path from a side road while driving on Broadway around 7:15 Thursday morning.

Courtney Crowe was rushed to a nearby hospital in a helicopter with unspecified injuries.

Authorities from the Indiana State Police are helping local officials with the crash investigation.


The article suggests that the driver of the truck failed to yield to the right-of-way before the accident. You may think that just because the driver is facing citations in connection with the accident, that this must be a slam dunk case, and while I wish this were true it simply isn’t. Trucking companies have a great deal of practice in dealing with accidents of their own, while the victims in the crashes have only dealt with one or two collision their whole lives. If the trucking company knows they were in the wrong, they will likely do all they can to minimalize the damage by shifting the blame onto the victim by saying that they were driving recklessly or failed to avoid the accident. Always be prepared to fight in accidents with commercial vehicle companies, no matter how clear the facts look.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
