English woman dies in crash

An English woman died early last Wednesday morning following a crash on Interstate 64 just east of the Corydon exit.
According to a report by Indiana State Police Trooper Josh Orme, Diana Sue Watson, 41, was driving a Ford Ranger west on I-64 when, at about 12:45 a.m., she veered off the highway into the median.
Orme said it appears Watson over-corrected, traveling back across the westbound lanes of traffic then going off the north side of the interstate and striking a rock wall.
The Ford Ranger rolled over, ejecting Watson from the truck, and came to a final resting position partially in the right driving lane.
Another vehicle, a white 2003 GMC Sonoma, which was also traveling west, struck the crashed Ford Ranger, Orme said. The driver of the GMC Sonoma, Joseph W. Gilley, 65, of Washington, was not injured.
Watson was pronounced dead at the scene.
Westbound I-64 was closed for a brief period of time while the crash was investigated.
Assisting agencies included the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept., Harrison Township Volunteer Fire Dept., Harrison County Hospital Emergency Medical Services, Corydon Police Dept. and the Harrison County Coroner’s Office.
The investigation is continuing.
