A head-on motor vehicle collision occurred this past week in Posey County, Indiana. Officials say they believe drugs or alcohol were a contributing factor in the crash that left four people with an Indiana DUI Injury.
The accident happened on Wednesday, March 27, at approximately 8:30 p.m. along State Route 62. According to an article from Channel 14 News, a 57-year-old man from Carmi, Indiana, was traveling eastbound along the road when he began to veer across the centerline and into oncoming traffic. He then collided with a vehicle carrying three passengers driven by a 19-year-old woman from Grayville, Illinois.
The impact of the collision knocked the man’s vehicle off to the side of the road where it bounced like a pinball between the guardrails for roughly 1,100 feet before coming to a halt.
The female driver and her three passengers were each taken by ambulance to a local trauma center, where they received treatment to their injuries and were released.
Meanwhile, the driver responsible for causing the crash was subjected to a blood alcohol screening. Investigators are awaiting the results of those tests and say charges are pending the outcome of the results.
