Driver Injured in Truck Accident on U.S. 41 in Vigo County, IN
Vigo County, IN — November 18, 2023, a driver sustained injuries following a semi-truck accident at around 5:45 p.m. along U.S. Highway 41.
Initial details about the crash say that it took place in the area of U.S. 41 and East Harlan Drive. Details are scarce right now, and few outlets appear to be reporting on the accident.
According to MyWabashValley, the Indiana State Police described the crash as a semi-trailer going thorough a red light on northbound lanes of U.S. 41/150 just south of Youngstown. In doing so, the semi-truck and another vehicle collided. The second driver was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries.
Why there are so few additional details available right now isn't really clear. Local news outlets are generally more thorough with commercial vehicle accidents. That's especially true with allegations as serious as a truck driver supposedly running a red light. Could it be that authorities aren't saying much about this crash, or is this crash a lot more complex than a typical truck wreck?
