Woman Arrested After Crashing Into Police Vehicle
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
An Indianapolis woman was arrested after she
crashed her car into a local police vehicle and fled the scene. Police reported
that the woman was leaving a nearby neighborhood when she collided with
a police car that was heading eastbound. The woman fled her car with her
young child and ran back into the neighborhood. Officers tracked her down
at her mother’s home, and they took her into custody. Authorities
were called to the scene to treat her injuries. They temporarily closed
the intersection down for an investigation, and it has been reopened.
Car accidents can result in minor scrapes to multiple car pileups, and
it’s estimated that there are 10 million vehicle accidents each
year. Several factors can lead to a car accident. Distracted driving has
become more prevalent with technology soaring on phones, tablets and even
in the vehicle itself which can cause a motorist to take their eyes off
the road. Drowsy driving is another scary factor and has been linked to
being just as dangerous as driving under the influence. Even missing one
to two extra hours of sleep at night can affect your alertness and reduce
your reflexes. Excessive speed can result in drivers losing control of
the vehicle more easily and also decrease your stop time reflex. This
is very dangerous to not only the driver but another motorist as well
and can cause serious car accidents. An experienced attorney can aid in
determining if you have grounds to pursue legal action.
