LEAVENWORTH — Debris in the roadway from a blown tire led to a Wednesday crash at I-64’s 89-mile marker that injured three people.
Indiana State Police said the accident occurred at 7:35 p.m. in the westbound lanes.
Lacarole Mitchell, 37, of Indianapolis was westbound in a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe when she observed a large tire tread in her driving lane, troopers said. Mitchell swerved to avoid the obstacle but she lost control of the SUV, which rolled.
One of Mitchell’s passengers, her 15-year-old daughter, T’ayr Sheriff, was ejected during the rollover, according to police. She was airlifted to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville with a complaint of back pain, police said.
Two other passengers, 30-year-old Christopher Maxwell of Louisville and 18-year-old De-Sean Tisom of Indianapolis, were transported by ambulance to Louisville for treatment of back pain.
Troopers said seat belts were not in use at the time of the crash.
The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department and Emergency Medical Services and the Leavenworth Volunteer Fire Department assisted.
