On Thursday, officials released names of the two victims involved in a head-on collision Wednesday morning.
A press release prepared by Deputy Brad Hardey of the Clay County Sheriff's Department stated Jason A. Milner, 34, Poland, was driving a pick-up truck southbound on State Road 59 when his vehicle was hit head on by a northbound passenger car driven by Whitney N. Vanatti, 21, Brazil, in an area just south of Christ Community Church around 10:30 a.m.
Officials report Vanatti's vehicle crossed the centerline for undisclosed reasons during the accident.
Milner was initially transported to Terre Haute Union Hospital, and later taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where officials reported Thursday he is listed in stable condition.
Vanatti was taken directly from the scene to Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis, where officials reported Thursday she is listed in critical condition.
While both lanes of the highway were temporarily closed while accident debris was removed, the highway was reopened around 12:30 p.m.
Further information is not available pending the investigation.
