Two canines lost their lives in a severe West Lafayette vehicle crash



West Lafayette, Indiana – Two dogs were killed in a head-on collision between two automobiles on Sunday afternoon, and the West Lafayette Police Department is looking into the incident.

This incident occurred on December 25, around 4:15 p.m., on the eastbound lanes of Sagamore Parkway, immediately west of the Wabash River bridge.

Officers arrived and found that an eastbound SUV had been struck head-on by a westbound pickup truck that had lost control for an unidentified reason and crossed the center median.

The West Lafayette Fire Department had to extract the seriously injured driver of the SUV from the car before he could be brought to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

After that, the woman was sent to a hospital in Indianapolis, where her status is still serious but stable.

The passenger was also taken to the hospital after sustaining non-life-threatening injuries.

The press report stated that the couple in the SUV was traveling with two dogs in the vehicle. Sadly, the collision claimed their lives.

The pickup truck driver was brought to the hospital to receive treatment for minor wounds.

As is customary in crashes involving serious injury or death, a blood sample was taken. However there was no proof that drugs or alcohol played a role in the collision.

Investigations into the incident are still ongoing.

The West Lafayette Police Department’s number to report information regarding the collision is (765) 775-5200.
