Wednesday, April 20, 2011

VIGO COUNTY -- A Clay City woman was involved in a two-vehicle accident in Vigo County Wednesday morning.

According to information provided by the Indiana State Police Department, around 9:40 a.m., ISP Troopers and Vigo County emergency agencies responded to an accident scene on United States 41 near Pimento, which resulted in injuries to one driver and a passenger.

Preliminary investigation revealed a gray 2006 Chevrolet HHR passenger car driven by Ronald D. Cook, 50, Terre Haute, was stopped in the westbound lane on Pimento Circle at US 41. Cook then proceeded westbound across US 41 and drove into the path of a northbound black 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Meranda S. Jackson, 20, Clay City.

Cook, complaining of hip and leg pain, was transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital, while the passenger, Cook's wife, Debra Cook, 53, was transported to the same hospital for back pain.

Officials confirmed Jackson complained of knee pain, but refused medical treatment at the scene.

According to authorities, alcohol was not a factor in this crash. However, Cook was cited for Failure to Yield the Right of Way.

ISP Master Trooper Ritch Reynolds investigated the accident, while the Vigo County Sheriff's Office, Linton Township Fire/Rescue, Honey Creek Fire/Rescue, and TransCare Ambulance Service provided assistance at the scene.
