The Honey Creek Fire Department and Vigo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a head-on collision at about 8 p.m. on Indiana Highway 63, just south of the Federal Correctional Complex near Ryman Drive. Four individuals were sent to the hospital by ambulance. Initial investigation indicated that a southbound pickup truck collided with a northbound car right towards the middle of the highway.
During a twelve hour period starting at the beginning of work commutes, the Indiana State Police reportedly responded to three slide-off accidents and 10 other car and truck accidents. Only two of the 10 accidents were reported to involve injuries. The Vigo County Sheriff’s Department had similar results and responded to two slide-offs and 13 accidents. Of those accidents, four were reported to have involved injuries.
State Police in the Bloomington District announced a Level 2 warning for travelers, which means conditions are threatening to the safety of the public and only essential travel should be made. Monroe, Owen, Greene, Lawrence and Brown counties fall into the Bloomington District.
