2 injured in head-on crash on U.S. 150
Troopers from Indiana State Police Sellersburg post are investigating an injury crash involving a passenger car and a pick-up truck that sent both drivers to University Hospital in Louisville with serious injuries.
At approximately 11:12 Saturday morning, Troopers Kevin Bowling and Brett Walters, along with officers from the Washington County Sheriff’s Dept. and Posey Township Fire Dept., responded to a crash on U.S. 150 just west of Kay’s Chapel Road, located between Fredericksburg and Hardinsburg.
When officers and first responders arrived, they found a beige 2014 Buick LaCrosse had collided head-on with a white 2013 Chevrolet Silverado. Both vehicles were stationary in the westbound lane of the highway. Air ambulances were called for both drivers, who were the sole occupants of their vehicles.
The driver of the Buick, identified as Linda J. Flock, 66, of New Salisbury, had to be extricated from her car before she could be flown to the hospital.
The driver of the Silverado was Heidi Nicole Cochran, 20, of Hardinsburg, police said.
Troopers on-scene called an ISP Crash Reconstruction Team to assist in the investigation.
The preliminary investigation reveals that the Buick, which was headed east, crossed over into the westbound lane and collided with the Silverado. Investigators are still trying to determine why the Buick crossed over into the westbound lane.
Flock was initially listed as in critical condition, and Cochran was in serious condition.
U.S. 150 remained closed for approximately three hours following the crash.
