A head-on collision in Georgetown caused injuries to four people, including three minors, Monday afternoon.
According to the Georgetown Police Department, 17-year-old Braden T. Branham was driving a 1995 Chevrolet about 45 miles per hour in the 30 miles per hour posted speed of Oakes Road when his vehicle began to hydroplane and fishtail in the heavy rain. The vehicle went off the west side of the road and began to spin. Braden over-corrected and crossed both lanes of traffic. About 2:45 p.m. he collided head-on with 37-year-old Lacosta M. White of Georgetown in a 2006 Toyota Camry near Meadow Oak Drive.
Georgetown resident 11-year-old Noah White was in the Toyota and sustained a possible broken arm in the collision. Ms. White was bleeding from her face when emergency crews arrive. Lanesville residents 11-year-old Nick Johnson and 17-year-old Travis Meriweather were in the Chevrolet with Braden. Nick suffered a contusion to his head. Travis was bleeding from his head. No injuries were reported for Braden.

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.
