UPDATED: Haysville Woman Drives SUV Into Side Of House (BLOTTER)

HAYSVILLE (NNDC) – Charges are pending against a local woman who authorities say crashed her SUV into a home on Haysville’s south side Sunday morning and then tried to leave the scene.

DCSD says 40-year old Bethelyn Morris of Haysville was intoxicated when her SUV struck the home of Charles Nehmer in the 7200 block of North U. S. 231. DCSD says Morris was westbound on Haysville Road West. She then turned into the parking lot of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. DCSD says she drove south through the lot before striking the Nehmer house. The impact caused damage to the home’s foundation.

DCSD says Morris then left the scene heading south on 231. She then partially pulled into a private drive a short distance and then stopped.

Morris was transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper to be treated for her injuries. She was later transferred to an Evansville hospital for her injuries.
