A fatal vehicle accident took place on Wednesday in Indiana around 6:30 in the morning. The road crash took place on U.S. 31 when an eastbound Volkswagen veered into the direction of a northbound Saturn. As a result, the vehicles collided and the Volkswagen wound up in a ditch while the Volkswagen was hit twice more, by a Ford Focus and a Dodge Ram with a horse trailer, before also wounding up in a ditch. The Dodge Ram also traveled into a ditch as a result of the accident, while the Ford Focus ended up in the median that was in the center of the roadway. The driver of the Saturn was taken to the hospital by air to be given medical attention, while the passenger of the Saturn passed away at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Ford Focus was also given medical attention after the accident.
Accidents of various kinds and degrees take place every day, with the three most common contributing factors being: speeding, driving distractedly, and driving while under the influence.
