Asleep at the wheel, truck driver involved in fatal accident in Valparaiso, Indiana


Facts will continue coming to light however, from eyewitnesses and police investigators Adele Nielsen was alone a bit before noon on May 28th, awaiting a red light to change at the intersection of State Route 49 (Indiana 49) and Vale Park Road in Valparaiso, IN.

Rumbling down State Route 49, a big rig truck rammed into Nielsen’s vehicle from behind. The truck collision was so violent that the semi truck actually thrust her car 150 yards (450 feet) down the Indiana 49 roadway before coming to a stop atop the car itself. That’s longer than any NFL football field by about 100 feet.
