Indiana State Police and federal inspections of heavy trucks in Lake and Porter counties have resulted in more than a quarter of those trucks being taken out of service for serious safety violations. Yet there are few inspectors on the job.
About a quarter of the thousands of heavy trucks that roll through Northwest Indiana every day are operating with serious safety defects or physically compromised drivers, state police inspectors say.
With thousands of semi-trucks driving state highways each day, the Indiana State Police look out for those in violation.
A Crown Point man, likely distracted by commotion on the highway, slams his SUV into the back of a semitrailer more than 13 times heavier than his vehicle.
Master Motor Carrier Inspector Scott Fleming with the Indiana State Police explains how fatigue plays a factor in semi-truck related accidents.
