At approximately 5:29 p.m., Vigo County Central Dispatch received a 911 call reporting the crash, with injuries, on United States 40, just east of Seelyville.
The crash allegedly involved an Indiana State Police Trooper.
Emergency responders arrived and found both the trooper and the other motorist still inside their vehicle.
Members of the Seelyville Fire/Rescue Department extricated both drivers within 15 minutes of arriving. TransCare Ambulance Service then transported both drivers to Union Hospital for treatment.
The injuries sustained by both drivers did not appear to be life threatening.
A preliminary investigation revealed the trooper was westbound on U.S. 40, with emergency lighting and siren activated, en route to a "burglary in progress," call in southern Vigo County.
As the 2010 Ford Crown Victoria police vehicle passed by Tabor Town Road, the trooper's vehicle came upon two vehicles in the right lane. The lead vehicle slowed and pulled to the right and the second vehicle veered into the passing lane, possibly to go around the lead vehicle.
The movement caused the trooper to take action and veer to the left. In doing so, the trooper's car collided with an eastbound 2005 Chevy Tahoe.
The driver of the Tahoe, Janetta E. England, 52, Brazil, complained of shoulder, neck, knee and hip pain.
The trooper, Don Curtis, 30, Terre Haute, is a four-year veteran with ISP, assigned to the Putnamville District. He was admitted to Union Hospital to be treated for a head laceration and shoulder injuries.
Seatbelts were used by both drivers involved in the accident.
No citations were issued.
The crash is still under investigation by ISP crash reconstructionists. U.S. 40 was temporarily closed east and westbound for two-and-a-half hours for crash reconstruction and clean up.
