Police say a minivan crashed Sunday in the Versailles area, killing himself and injuring two passengers.
According to reports, Zachary Smith of Versailles, 32, was behind the wheel of a minivan as it traveled along an unidentified roadway. Around 3:25 a.m., Mr. Smith apparently lost control.
Investigators say the van left the roadway, crashed into a nearby depression and flipped. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported Mr. Smith to Batesville’s Margaret Mary Community Hospital, but he died in transit.
Two other occupants were treated for lesser injuries. According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, 749 travelers were killed in 674 fatal traffic accidents in Indiana in 2011.
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.
