A woman in southern Indiana lost control of her vehicle while trying to navigate a curve on a wet road, crossed the center line, struck another vehicle, and died from her injuries. WKW investigated the accident, obtained numerous accident reports involving the same curve, interviewed multiple witnesses, and found that over sixty other accidents had occurred at the same curve. A homeowner adjacent to the road testified that she had to eventually take down her fence because cars kept crashing through it with such regularity after sliding off the curve.

A wrongful death claim was brought on behalf of the deceased woman’s husband against the State of Indiana, based upon improper signage that failed to properly warn of the dangerous curve. The road was re-designed, and the case was settled at mediation.
