INDIANAPOLIS - Police say 35-year old Mark Daily was outside his tow truck, helping a broken-down vehicle on the side of the highway when a van came along and ran over him. Police say that driver, 40-year old Ronald Stevens did not obey the move-over law. And they cited him for unsafe lane movement and following too close.
"Driving becomes so second nature to people that they don't give it the attention that it deserves," said Sgt. Dave Bursten of the Indiana State Police. "And just that moment lapse of attention to what you're doing can have catastrophic results. We're very, very fortunate that this did not end up being a multi-fatality crash."
The accident involved three other vehicles, including a military Humvee and two other people had minor injures. Everyone is expected to recover.
