Genevieve Boulais travels on Interstate 69 between Indianapolis and Muncie regularly. As a student at Ball State University, Boulais was on a return trip to the university following her fall break.
She says an 18-wheeler kept inching closer to the rear of her car until it finally bumped into her. Before she could react, the semi-truck driver crashed into her car again, causing her to lose control of her car.
CBS 4 Indy reports that Boulais flipped her car over and into a ditch off the highway. The car sustained massive damage to the front and back bumpers and windows as well as the roof. CBS 4 Indy reports that the crash totaled the car.
However, Boulais managed to survive the horrifying affair with only minor injuries – a bruise on her leg. She says the driver of the truck never stopped.
Fishers police say this is the fifth accident involving semi-trucks – and it is the fifth crash where the 18-wheeler driver is listed as being at fault.
The following information regarding large truck traffic crashes is provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
