Two Teens Killed in Deadly Crash in Hammond, Indiana

A parent’s worst nightmare is to learn that their child has been hurt. We pray that we never receive that phone call letting us know that our son or daughter has been injured in a car crash. When that call comes, and the news is that our loved one has died, we feel like our world has ended that is what happened to these parents who had two teens killed in a deadly crash.

Unfortunately, two mothers in Hammon must’ve received those phone calls on Monday.  A car driven by a teen and her friend smashed into a semi-truck, killing them both instantly.

Both 17-year old Emily Perez and 18-year old Mia Rodriguez, were driving between 108th and Indianapolis Boulevard the other day when they slammed into the side of a tractor trailer. Witnesses say that the teens ran a red light and ran straight into the truck.

Both of the girls died at the accident scene. The driver of the truck, whose name has not been released, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. No statement has been released by either the truck driver or the families of the victims.

Usually, when we hear about a tractor trailer accident, we assume the truck driver was at fault. This simply wasn’t the case here. In fact, it is just as likely that the other driver would be at fault as it is the trucker is at fault.

Unfortunately, in this case, two teens died as a result. There has been nothing said about there being any alcohol or drugs involved in the crash.
