Kapono Wood Killed in Truck Accident in Frankfort, IN

Frankfort, IN -- February 16, 2023, Kapono Wood was killed due to an accident where his vehicle crashed into a semi-truck.

Investigators said that the incident happened at around 4:15 p.m. at the intersection of State Road 28 and County Road 200 West. Details said that 25-year-old Kapono Wood was in a vehicle traveling eastbound along SR 28. A semi-truck ahead reportedly failed to yield, and Wood's vehicle crashed under the trailer.

Due to the collision, Wood sustained fatal injuries. No one else was said to be injured. Right now, it's unclear if any charges or citations are being considered. Based on the initial details I'm seeing, I'd frankly be surprised if they weren't. There are red flags surrounding these details that are far too familiar, and it's just infuriating to think there's a family out there that have lost a lifetime with their loved one due to a situation which is almost always avoidable. But it's going to take thorough investigations into these details to say for certain how all of this could have been avoided.

Looking at this intersection, I just can't fathom how a responsible truck driver could fail to see cross traffic. Are there unusual factors the news doesn't mention, such as poor weather conditions or issues with the signage at this intersection? Or is this yet another family devastated by the completely avoidable actions of an inattentive or reckless truck driver?
