Sullivan — A one-vehicle crash on U.S. 41 near County Road 300 North in Sullivan County sent one person to an Indianapolis hospital Tuesday.
A white 1993 Pontiac Bonneville was northbound on U.S. 41 and began swerving within the driving and passing lanes, the Indiana State Police reported. The vehicle then left the roadway on the east side and struck a large brick sign for the Sullivan County Community Hospital. The driver was wearing a seat belt, but was trapped in the vehicle for 30 minutes before being extricated by members of the Sullivan Fire Department.
The driver was identified as Brandy Bailey, 32, of Hymera. She was flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis by air ambulance for treatment of possible multiple fractures and facial lacerations. She was the only occupant of the vehicle.
All lanes of U.S. 41 were closed for nearly one hour while responders cleared the scene.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this crash, state police reported.
