New Salisbury woman dies from crash injuries New Salisbury woman dies from crash injuries

A New Salisbury woman who was injured in a crash last month has died of her injuries.

Linda J. Flock, 66, succumbed Monday evening to injuries she sustained in a head-on crash July 17 on U.S. 150 just west of Kay’s Chapel Road located between Fredericksburg and Hardinsburg.

A press release from the Indiana State Police post at Sellersburg said Flock, who was driving a beige 2014 Buick LaCrosse, had collided head-on with a white 2013 Chevrolet Silverado at about 11:10 on the morning of July 17. Both Flock and the driver of the Silverado, 20-year-old Heidi Nicole Coch-
ran of Hardinsburg, were flown by air ambulance to University Hospital in Louisville. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the Buick, which was headed east, crossed over into the westbound lane and collided with the Silverado. Investigators were trying to determine why the Buick crossed over into the westbound lane.

Cochran was initially listed in serious condition, while Flock was in critical condition. Flock underwent several surgeries during the 15 days following the crash.

Flock was a 4-H leader, an assistant manager at the Harrison County – Purdue Extension Office in Corydon and a member of Mount Tabor Church of Christ in Depauw.

Her funeral will be Sunday at 2 p.m. at her church with burial in Central Barren Cemetery. Swarens Funeral Home in Ramsey is handling the arrangements.
