A Harrison County woman died early Saturday morning in a head-on collision that also left two Jennings County women injured, police said.

Jessica Lowry, 27, of New Salisbury, was pronounced died at the scene of the 5:11 a.m. crash on State Road 3 near County Road 500 North, Maj. Jerry Shepherd of the Jennings County Sheriff's Department said.

Tracy Elliot, 49, and Brenda M. Goff, 44, both of North Vernon, were taken to St. Vincent Jennings Hospital in North Vernon. Their conditions were not available Sunday afternoon, a spokeswoman said.
