One person was injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash at Allisonville Road and 91st Street in Indianapolis.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department reports the accident occurred around 8:20 a.m. when a Jeep, driven by 53-year-old Fishers resident Lisa Allen, crashed with a Hyundai driven by 25-year-old April Knopf of Indianapolis.
The report says Ms. Knopf told officers she turned left toward 91st Street on a yellow light and pulled into the path of the other vehicle, which Ms. Allen said had a green light. The Jeep reportedly then struck the Hyundai.
Ms. Knopf reportedly complained of back pain following the injury. No other injuries were reported.
According to a report from the Indiana State Police, there were 188,132 traffic accidents resulting in injuries and/or property damage in 2011, and 674 accidents resulted in 749 total fatalities during that year.
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.
