A medical condition could be the cause of an two-car accident near Coalmont Saturday evening that sent three people to Sullivan County Hospital for minor injuries.

Clay County Sheriff Deputy Josh Clarke responded to a 911 call reporting an head-on collision near the intersection of S.R. 48 and C.R. 1475 S.

According to the accident report, Alainia R. Coleman, 22, of Linton, apparently hit Nancy M. Jackson's pickup truck after leaving the roadway, over-correcting and then crossing into the eastbound lane.

Jackson, 39, lives at Jasonville.

Coleman said she remembered talking with her 4-year old daughter before the accident but did not know what happened afterwards.

Coleman has a medical condition that can cause seizures. But she told authorities a doctor recently released her to drive.

Jackson complained of pain in her arms, but was not taken to the hospital. Coleman and two juvenile passengers who were in the front seat were transported to Sullivan County Hospital for minor injuries.

Damage was estimated between $5,000 to $10,000 for both vehicles, which had to be towed from the scene by a towing service.
