Bloomington Truck Accidents
As Indiana’s seventh-largest city, over 80,000 people call Bloomington their home. Established in 1818, the city soon became known for its breathtaking scenery and beautiful blossoms, thus earning the name Bloomington.
Though the city is known for its stunning terrain, Bloomington is also known for founding Indiana University in 1820. Currently the largest and original campus of Indiana University, the college is home to over 42,000 students. Other than adding to the ever-growing population of the city, Indiana University aided Bloomington into becoming a regional economic center, helping the city home multiple diverse business communities, including but not limited to: technology, healthcare, and the arts.
Though Bloomington is an exquisite city and was designated a Tree City for more than 30 years, the city is also known for its great business. Magazines recognize Bloomington as one of “America’s Best Cities for Doing Business” and one of the “Hottest Small Cities for Entrepreneurs.” In Bloomington, employment in the life sciences is six times greater than the US average, and employment in the technology sector grew, in recent years, by over 80 percent.
In addition to the increase of employment, Bloomington has experienced a lot of road construction. For many years, Bloomington was one of the largest cities in Indiana without an interstate or expressway. However, with the transformation of SR 37 from a 4-lane highway to Interstate standards for the next section of I-69 between Bloomington and Martinsville, traffic swelled significantly, causing cars and large trucks to impede and clog the roadways. Because of the traffic, accidents may be more likely to occur than before.
