Crash Splits Car In Half, Two Injured

Comments Off

Two people were injured in a car accident on Cornbread Road Thursday morning. Officials suspect excessive speed may be a factor.

The driver, 21, was airlifted to Indianapolis Hospital after she was found unconscious at the scene with head injuries. A passenger, 20, was treated at Ball Memorial Hospital.

It appears Harvey was traveling west on Cornbread Rd. near Andrews Rd. when the car left the road, struck two telephone poles and hit a tree, according to Sherriff Bill Polk.

Due to the force of impact, the vehicle was split in half, but both driver and passenger were wearing seat belts. The investigation is ongoing, but Polk believes excessive speed was a factor.
