Car accidents can be incredibly serious, causing devastating and sometimes life-threatening injuries. According to the Lafayette Journal & Courier, a woman from Kokomo, Indiana died on June 11th, 2014 after she was severely injured in a car collision.
The 59-year-old woman was driving south on the Indiana 29 when she attempted to turn left onto Carroll County Road. A southbound pickup truck crashed into her car during the turn, sending both the vehicles into a yard at the intersection. The driver of the pick-up truck was a 28-year-old male.
The woman was trapped in her car and extricated by firefighters shortly afterwards, according to a press release by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department. She was airlifted to the Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis but later died during surgery. The other driver was taken to Saint Joseph Hospital for medical treatment.
Many car accidents can result in devastating injuries which cause:
- Organ damage
- Loss of blood
- Brain damage

Sometimes it is these conditions which can cause a sudden death after the collision. Individuals that do not get immediate medical attention or suffer complications may die in transit to the hospital or once at the hospital.
