Single-car crash sends one person to hospital

TERRE HAUTE — One person was taken to a local hospital this afternoon after a one-car crash on Harlan Drive in southern Vigo County. The accident happened shortly before 2 p.m.

The male driver of the vehicle, a two-door passenger car, was taken from the scene by Trans-Care ambulance with unknown injuries. A female passenger in the vehicle declined medical treatment and remained at the crash site, according to the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department.

Witnesses told police the vehicle was traveling west on Harlan when it crossed the center line for unknown reasons. The driver of the car then over-corrected and the vehicle left the roadway on the south side of the drive, striking a small tree and overturning. The car came to rest upside down beside the road.

East-bound vehicles were forced onto the wrong side of the road to avoid hitting the car before it left the roadway, witnesses told police.

Traffic on Harlan Drive was blocked while emergency crews from the Pierson Township and Honey Creek fire departments worked the scene along with Vigo County Sheriff’s deputies.
