Karl Carter Killed, 1 Injured in 18-wheeler Accident on I-65 in Clinton County, IN

UPDATE (April 21, 2023): Indiana State Police officials identified the driver killed in the collision as 54-year-old Karl Carter of Matteson, Illinois. The other driver has not yet been identified. Additional details about the accident remain unclear at this time.

Clinton County, IN — April 19, 2023, one person was killed and one was injured following an 18-wheeler accident at 2:30 p.m. along I-65.

Boone County Sheriff's Office investigators said that the incident happened outside of Lebanon in the area of mile marker 151. Their initial statements indicate that a 2016 Freightliner traveling southbound on Interstate 65 lost control and careened across the median. Doing so, the 18-wheeler entered oncoming lanes and crashed into a 2022 Freightliner. The trucks then caught fire.

Details say that the driver of the 2022 Freightliner died due to the collision. The 2016 Freightliner driver was taken to a hospital. No others were said to be injured. At this time, a specific cause for the crash is undetermined.

An 18-wheeler losing control so dramatically is often a concerning sign someone may have been doing something wrong. But knowing the exact facts is crucial for victims and families. Was it just a driver mismanaging their time and falling asleep at the wheel? Was it a medical emergency? A sudden tire blowout or cargo shift? Was the truck properly maintained? Was the driver inexperienced, or did they have a history of reckless driving? Was some other vehicle involved that left the scene?

In my time working with many experienced professional truck drivers, they'd be the first to admit that there are truck drivers out there who are deadly wrecks waiting to happen. However, they also understand there are unique challenges that come with driving commercial trucks which the rest of us don't have to worry about. That's why it's so important in these situations that authorities are able to handle even unusual and complicated situations to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks. The victim's loved ones deserve answers, and that's not going to happen without a proper accident reconstruction.
