[ISP] One Vehicle CrashClaims One Life on I-65
Start Date: 6/11/2012 All Day
End Date: 6/11/2012
Entry Description

White County-Today at approximately 12:21 p.m. on I-65 northbound near the 188 mile marker in White County (this is near the Brookston exit); a single vehicle crash claims the life of a Remington woman.

Preliminary investigation by Indiana State Police Motor Carrier Supervisor Sergeant Rich Kelly has revealed that a silver 2001 Infiniti I-30 driven by Ruth A. Lehman, 49 years old from Remington, IN was northbound on I-65 near the 188 mm.  For an unknown reason the car drifted off the left side of the roadway.  Lehman over corrected and started back across the interstate and went into the right ditch and rolled several times end over end ejecting her out the rear window.  The car came to rest on its top and Lehman was lying on the ditch bank.  In the initial investigation, seatbelts apparently were not in use at the time of the crash.

Brookston and Monticello Fire and Rescue arrived and attempted to revive Lehman but she was pronounced dead at the scene.  The car was a total loss.  Family has been notified.

Assisting at the scene were Indiana State Police Master Troopers Bill Brooks and Larry Mote Sr, Sergeant Kim Riley, Troopers Nate King and Ashley Kelly of the Indiana State Police Motor Carrier Enforcement Division, Sheriff Pat Shafer of the White County Sheriff’s Department and Statflight Helicopter Ambulance Service.  The investigation is continuing.

We continue to stress the importance of seatbelt and child restraint use.  Seatbelts and child restraint have and continue to save lives in all types of crashes.  They keep you inside the vehicle which is statistically the safest place to be in a crash.  Buckle-up, if not for you maybe for your family!
