Hammond Truck Accidents
Hammond, the eighth-largest city in Indiana, is home to over 77,000 Hoosiers. The city is located at the Northwestern corner of the Hoosier state, only about a half an hour away from Chicago, Illinois. Because of Hammond’s closeness to the third largest city in the United States, it’s considered to be a part of the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Hammond’s convenient location helps provide Hoosiers a feeling of smaller-city living with the option of visiting or commuting to one of the biggest cities in the United States.
In 1869, the George H. Hammond Company meat-packing plant helped industrialize the city because of the beneficial location it provided by being near Lake Michigan. Named after the company that helped it become what it is today, the city of Hammond was officially incorporated on April 21, 1884. The George H. Hammond Company provided a multitude of jobs for Hoosiers, thus bringing in families and shaping Hammond into a prospering and friendly city.
Though Hammond’s population has decreased since its record high of over 111,000 residents in 1960, Hammond continues to offer a great alternative for those who want to live near a large city but don’t want to deal with the hussle and bussle of city life. Hammond additionally offers a variety of educational options for students with a total of 22 schools, including the Hammond Academy of Science & Technical.
Since the city is located near Chicago, many of Hammond’s residents commute or visit Chicago frequently. Because of the heavy traffic and large trucks and cars blocking roadways, roads are becoming more dangerous for drivers and the heavy traffic is increasing the chance of automobile accidents.
