Fishers Truck Accidents
Fishers is Indiana's sixth-largest city with more than 85,000 residents and it doesn't look as if it is going to stop growing any time soon. The city was first established in 1802 by William Conner, who built a log cabin, along with a trading post along the White River. The land Conner once inhabited, now called Conner Prairie, is now one of the most respected living history museums in the nation.
Once Indiana received recognition as a state in 1816, more settlers chose to settle in the homey town of Fishers. Because of the growing population, the town constructed the Peru & Indianapolis Railroad, which extended from Indianapolis to Chicago. The new addition to the town helped increase the population, but it is known that in recent years the population in Fishers is booming. In 1990, there was only a population of 7,200 people, whereas in 2004, there was a whopping population of over 50,000.
Fishers’ population continues to increase, and in addition to its rising population, CQ Press named Fishers the safest city in the nation in their 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 issue. Furthermore, magazines note Fishers as America’s most affordable suburb, and one of the best places to live.
Growing with opportunities for jobs and named one of the safest cities in the nation, a multitude of people choose to move to Fishers. Along with new residents homes and businesses, the city is experiencing a swell in heavy traffic.
