Recently, an Indiana lawmaker and his daughter got involved in a car accident on Ohio Street in downtown Indianapolis. Fortunately, neither was seriously hurt.
The accident occurred on a weekday evening, when Representative David Niezgodski of South Bend was driving his Cadillac STS sedan with his 23 year old daughter, Rachael, when they suffered a broadside, right-angled collision known as a "T-bone." The other car was a Kia Sorento SUV headed south on Capital Avenue.
While the other driver, a 24-year old woman from Indianapolis, was uninjured and treated at the scene, Niezgodski and his daughter needed to be pulled from their car by the Indianapolis Fire Department. It reportedly took 15 minutes to extract Niezgodski's daughter from the car. The Niezgodskis were then taken to the nearby Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.
