A 58-year-old Oakland City resident, Judy Coomer, died after sustaining fatal injuries in a two-vehicle, rear-end accident that happened on Wednesday.
Indiana State Police said that the incident happened on Interstate 164 near the New Harmony exit. A 2009 Chevrolet Pickup driven by William Jones, 56, of French Lick, was slowing down due to bad patches of ice in the roadway. During this time, Ms. Coomer was following Mr. Jones’ vehicle and failed to stop when he was slowing, causing her vehicle to rear-end the right side of his pickup.
Ms. Coomer was pronounced dead on the scene, and a passenger in her vehicle–Paul Coomer, 35, of Oakland City–was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville for treatment of unknown injuries. Mr. Jones was not injured in the accident.
Seeing a copy of the Indiana accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Indiana Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Indiana accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
