Woman injured in wreck near Seymour

Tribune staff reports

A Washington County woman was flown to a Louisville hospital Monday after she sustained non-life-threatening injuries in a wreck on Interstate 65 near Seymour, police report.

Haley R. Weeden, 19, of Salem was driving a 2007 Ford Escape south near the 52-mile marker when she drove into the median, crossed back over the southbound lanes and went off the west side of the road, according to a news release from the Indiana State Police.

The vehicle then rolled several times before coming to a stop, Trooper Seth Davidson said in his report.

Weeden was flown from the scene to University of Louisville Hospital by StatFlight for treatment of her injuries, Davidson said.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash, reported shortly before 9 a.m., Davidson said.

He said Weeden was wearing a seat belt, which lessened her injuries.

The southbound lanes were closed for about 30 minutes due to StatFlight having to land on it.

Trooper Ed Olibo and officers with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and state excise police assisted at the scene along with medical personnel with Jackson County Emergency Medical Services. A tow truck was called to the scene to remove Weeden’s vehicle.
