A rear-end semi crash killed four young siblings on an Indiana highway on Thursday. The crash happened when a semi-truck failed to stop for slowing traffic in a construction zone on eastbound I-70 near Cambridge City. The semi slammed into the back of a Chevrolet, pushing the car into the rear of another semi-truck. Both vehicles caught on fire. A passerby pulled the car’s driver, Aaron Bruce (34) of Kansas City, from his vehicle. Bruce was transported to an Indianapolis hospital with serious injuries. Four children, who were all siblings, died in the crash. Their names are Anesa Noel Acosta (15), Quintin Michael McGowan (13), Brekkin Riley Bruce (8), and Trentin Beau Bruce (6). The semi driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators believe the semi driver was on drugs at the time of the crash.

Sue for a Rear-End Semi Crash
According to data from US DOT, rear-end semi crashes account for 25% of all fatal crashes in the U.S. When negligent drivers get behind the wheel of a large truck that can weight up to 80,000 pounds, people can get badly hurt or killed when these large trucks hit the back of a car, motorcycle, or bicycle. If you lost a loved one in a rear-end semi crash, you may be able to sue the trucking company and the driver who killed your loved one. While no amount of money could ever make up for the loss your family suffered, filing a wrongful death lawsuit will help you seek compensation and justice.
