One Injured in Crash with 18-Wheeler on CR 900N in McCordsville, IN

McCordsville, IN — December 29, 2022, one person was injured after a collision with a semi-truck's trailer on County Road 900 North in Hancock County.

Authorities say the incident happened Thursday at CR 900N (East 86th Street) and CR 700W (Carroll Road). Preliminary investigation suggests a Jeep Wrangler was eastbound on CR 900N as a tractor-trailer was northbound on CR 700W when the two collided in the roads' intersection, which is a four-way stop. During the collision the Jeep became wedged beneath the semi-trailer.

Responders extricated the Jeep driver and transported them to an Indianapolis hospital. The truck driver was reportedly unhurt.

No further information is currently available.

When a wreck like this happens at a four-way stop, some might quickly assume that one driver or the other ran a stop sign and calamity followed. Further investigation might conclude something to that effect, but as always it's not prudent or fair to jump to any conclusions. There could be a lot of variables involved here that simply weren't considered during a police once-over at the scene. For example, if the roads were slick or wet or if the trees on every corner of that intersection blocked the drivers' view of one another, those might be factors to consider. Furthermore, even if someone ran a sign that might have been due to issues beyond their control like a vehicle malfunction or a medical emergency.

All I'm saying is that preliminary reports rarely if ever have every possibility covered or even recognized. To be sure the true cause of the crash is uncovered and the right parties (if any) held responsible, it's always important to be careful and thorough while investigating. Will police efforts alone be enough to learn the whole story in McCordsville?
