According to a release from the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office, officers responded to a call about a vehicle accident and a car on fire around 8 p.m. Friday night.

The incident happened in the westbound lanes of State Road 46.

Investigation shows a 2007 Hyundai Sonata, driven by 27-year-old Ann Schwartze was traveling westbound on SR 46 when the Ford, driven by 21-year-old Danielle Catron, traveled into her lane and struck the vehicle. Shortly after the collision, the van erupted into flames.

Shwartze was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital for unknown injuries.
