Lawrence County Sheriff's reports say 44-year-old Karl Buch was sitting at the Patton Hill red light on IN-37 with his two daughters, when 76-year-old Katherine McGowan pulled up behind him and stopped.

Next thing he knows, McGowan's vehicle suddenly accelerates and starts striking his vehicle from behind.
