Earlier this month, an Indiana teen barely escaped a traffic accident with her life.
On the morning of June 18, 2015, seventeen-year-old Hanna Wade was driving along I-70 West when the front tire of her Nissan blew out. The car swerved, hit a guardrail, and came to a stop in the westbound passing lane near mile marker 19.
Wade got out of her car to call 911 as a passing semi-truck driver stopped on the shoulder to offer some assistance. She was trying to get her car off the road when another semi-truck moved into the passing lane to avoid the stopped tractor-trailer and struck her vehicle.
According to Indiana State troopers, mere seconds passed between the time the teen exited her car and the moment the second semi-truck crashed into it.
