Car stops on its side after crash

From Local Sources

ST. HENRY — Responders transported a woman as a precautionary measure after her car crashed Friday morning south of Huntingburg.

Maria Miranda, 21, Huntingburg, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2004 Acura TL when the 7:54 a.m. accident occurred south of County Road 1000S, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies said Miranda reached for an object in the vehicle, sending her car left of center. She over-corrected, according to the sheriff’s department, and her car left the west side of the highway.

The car overturned and stopped on its side in a field.

Miranda was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center after complaining of head pain, according to deputies. The sheriff’s department said her injuries were thought to be minor and a hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.

The crash totaled the Acura and resulted in U.S. 231 being down to one lane for about an hour while the scene was cleared.

The St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker assisted.
