One Injured In Accident Near Dubois Crossroads

20150505_130900DUBOIS CROSSROADS (NNDC) – One person was injured in a single vehicle accident just west of the Dubois Crossroads over the noon hour Tuesday.

THe Dubois County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.

We do know the car was traveling westbound on Indiana 56 about a mile west of the crossroads when for some unknown reason the car left the north side of the highway striking a large embedded rock causing the car to come to an immediate stop.

The force of the impact triggered a fire in the engine compartment of the car.

Dubois firefighters were called to the scene and quickly extinguished the fire.

The driver was the only occupant inside the car. She was transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper. The extent of her injuries are not known at this time.

We will have more coming up later on NewsNow Dubois County.
