West Lafayette Truck Accidents
Located near the Wabash River, West Lafayette’s sister city, Lafayette, is right across the Wabash River and is host to over 29,000 Indiana citizens. West Lafayette is known for being densely populated and the home of the prestigious Purdue University.
Until the late 1880's, West Lafayette was known as Chauncey, a modest, quiet town until the opening of Purdue University in 1869. Because of the university, the town quickly grew in size and population, and soon, established itself as an independent city from its sister city, Lafayette.
West Lafayette continues to thrive from the culture and diversity that Purdue University and its resident citizens have to offer. Scenic bike trails and beautiful parks decorate the city, a great asset for its residents. The city continues to offer ample opportunities for locals and visitors, while being one of the safest and healthiest cities in America.
Because of West Lafayette’s growing population and popularity, traffic swells with many trucks and cars congesting its roadways. Since college students inhabit the city during the school year, West Lafayette experiences more traffic than ever before. Especially around I-65 and US 52, large trucks block the road, generating accidents, and in some cases these accidents result in tragic deaths.
Thankfully, due in large part to modern safety features on cars and trucks, Indiana highway deaths and injuries continue to decline. However, the personal injury attorneys at Montross Miller continue to receive calls on a weekly basis from those around the state who have either suffered personal, serious injury or are grieving the loss of a loved one because of another driver's negligence and inattention.
