From Local Sources
CELESTINE — Three people were treated after a car-versus-SUV rollover collision Friday afternoon east of Celestine.
Aisha Deel, 16, Celestine, was eastbound on County Road 75N in a 2014 Chevrolet Impala when the 4:38 p.m. accident occurred at State Road 545, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Deel did not know the road well and was unaware that a stop sign and the highway quickly loomed after motorists crest a hill at the location, according to a deputy.
The sheriff’s office said the Deel Impala went into the intersection and was struck on its passenger side by a northbound 2008 Ford Explorer driven by Debbie Hartwick, 56, Celestine.
Both vehicles went down an embankment on the east side of the highway and rolled, according to the sheriff’s office.
Hartwick complained of pain and was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, according to a deputy. Deel and a juvenile passenger who was not identified by police suffered minor injuries and were transported via personal vehicle to the hospital.
A hospital spokeswoman said Deel and Hartwick were treated and released.
A deputy cited Deel for disregarding a stop sign.
The Celestine Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
