CLARKSVILLE – A Louisville woman is listed in critical condition after her vehicle collided with the concrete barrier wall in a single-vehicle crash Thursday night on I-65 in Clark County.
Shortly before 8 p.m., Clark County authorities responded to a crash involving a Toyota passenger car that collided with the barrier wall on I-65 southbound near the three-mile-marker. The vehicle was reported to be on fire, with the driver still inside.
When first responders arrived, they removed the driver, 55-year-old Cheyenne Brown, and extinguished the flames.
Brown was rushed to University Hospital with life-threatening injuries and is currently listed in stable but critical condition.
An Indiana State Police crash reconstructionist was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.
A preliminary investigation shows the Toyota was southbound on U.S. 31 from Lewis and Clark Parkway and attempted to merge onto southbound I-65. For an unknown reason, the car continued across all interstate lanes before colliding with the median barrier wall.
This crash remains under investigation.
The Indiana State Police was assisted by the Clarksville Police Department, the Clark County Sheriff’s Department, the Clarksville Fire Department, and New Chapel EMS.
