(ENGLISH) - A two-vehicle crash in English Wednesday injured three Crawford County residents.

According to an Indiana State Police report, at 1:35 p.m., 84-year-old Elsie Reed, of Eckerty, was traveling northbound on Indiana Avenue in English in her 1994 Ford Tempo, and was attempting to turn west onto State Road 64. Reed failed to see an eastbound 1994 Chevrolet Blazer, driven by 48-year-old Roy Pickett, of English, and turned into the path of his vehicle. Reed tried to avoid the collision, but the two vehicles crashed nearly head on.

Reed was transported to Baptist Health Floyd Hospital in New Albany, where she was treated for head, hand, and knee injuries. Pickett was taken to University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky after complaining of chest pains. Pickett's passenger, Mary Pickett, was also injured complaining of chest pain and loss of feeling in her feet.

Police say seat belts were in use at the time of the crash and reduced the severity of the injuries.

The Indiana State Police was assisted at the scene by the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, English Volunteer Fire Department, and Crawford County EMS.
