Haysville Accident Injures Three; Car & Driver Sought For Leaving Scene Of Accident (BLOTTER)

HAYSVILLE (NNDC) – Three people were injured, none seriously, in a single-vehicle accident early Sunday morning east of Haysville.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says a car driven by 27-year old Lindsey Quinn of rural Dubois crashed along Indiana 56 just west of North 325 at about 1:00AM.

Quinn told DCSD deputies she lost control of her car while traveling westbound in a curve.  She says she overcorrected her steering before the car slid off the south side of the highway.  The car went airborne down an embankment where it struck the ground and overturned several times before coming to rest on its passenger side.

Quinn and two passengers in the car with her, including a juvenile were transported to Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.  DCSD says none of the three were wearing seatbelts.  An adult passenger in the car has been identified as Shannon Evans (no age or address given).

DCSD says Quinn’s use of a cellphone at the time as well as speed too fast for conditions were also factors in the accident.
