2 Injured in Suspected Drunk Driving Crash on Indiana 28

Deputies with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office investigated a crash that left two people injured on Indiana 28 at around 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 17.

According to the TCSO, 28-year-old Derrick Alan Mangis was swerving while driving eastbound on Indiana 28. The vehicle left the roadway on the south side, near the 9000 block of IN-28 East. Mangis then attempted to correct his mistake and collided with a vehicle being driven by Nancy Pulley of Bluffton.

Pulley was seriously injured and was flown to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. Her passenger, 59-year-old Sheila Browning of Lucerne, was brought to a Lafayette hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Mangis complained of knee pain following the crash, according to the sheriff’s office. He was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving causing serious bodily injury and posted bond Sunday morning.

Financial Compensation For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Indiana

Hi, I’m attorney Jeff Gibson. At Wagner Reese, our personal injury lawyers represent people who have been injured in crashes caused by drunk drivers. Here is some general information on the options for financial compensation available to people who have been injured by drunk drivers in Indiana:

As in all other states, people who have been hit by drunk drivers in Indiana may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who injured them. But in Indiana and several other states, the legal options available to these victims don’t always end here. In some crashes, people who have been injured by drunk drivers may also file lawsuits against third parties, including alcohol vendors and social hosts.

These third-party lawsuits are commonly known as dram shop claims. In Indiana, an alcohol vendor or social host can be sued for injuries caused by someone that they provided alcohol to if the vendor or host knew that the person was already intoxicated when they provided them with alcohol and this intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the injuries suffered.

For example, if a bartender serves someone who is visibly intoxicated and that customer causes an accident that injures another person after leaving the bar, the bar could be held liable if the injured person files a dram shop lawsuit.
