(BEDFORD) - Two people were injured in a crash that closed Ind. 37 northbound traffic for several hours Thursday morning near Hill Construction.

According to a Lawrence County Police report, 88-year-old Viola Hill was pulling out of the driveway from Hill Construction and was attempting to cross the northbound lane of Ind. 37 when she pulled her 1997 Ford Ranger pickup into the path of a 2001 Kia driven by 52-year-old Sherrie Ramsey of Mitchell.

Ramsey told police she attempted to avoid the collision but was unable too. Hill told police she didn't see Ramsey's vehicle.

After the impact, Hill's truck flipped onto the driver's side pinning her arm under the vehicle. People who stopped to help were able to push the truck back up onto its wheels to free Hill. Ramsey's vehicle stopped in the median.

Hill suffered severe bleeding to her arm and was flown by Air Evac helicopter to Jewish Hospital in Louisville. Ramsey, who suffered internal chest injures, was flown by helicopter to Methodist Hospital.

Assisting at the scene were the Bedford Fire Department extrication unit, Marion Volunteer Fire Department first responders and an IU Health Hospital ambulance crew.
