(WASHINGTON) - Washington Police were called to an accident at the intersection of State Road 57 and E. South Street in Washington at 10:10 a.m. Sunday.

According to the police report, fifty-one year old Barbara Edrington of Washington was driving a 2010 Ford Mustang southbound on State Road 57 when she said she felt ill and blacked out.

Her car crossed the northbound lane and hit a 2003 Dodge Dakota sitting in the parking lot of White River Automotive Supplies.

The impact knocked the pick-up into South Street. Edrington's Mustang then grazed a steel utility pole and came to rest in a parking lot on the southeast corner of the intersection.

There were no injuries but damages are estimated at up to $25,000 dolllars.

In a similar incident in August, Barbara Edrington told officers, that at that time, she had blacked out when the pick-up she was driving hit three vehicles parked on Main Street in Washington, and then ran through the wall of the Washington Knights of Columbus building.
