KYANA — Two sisters escaped serious injury today in a rollover accident on State Road 64 just west of Kyana.
Alyssa Englert, 16, of 2725 S. Kings Ridge Road, Birdseye, was westbound on the highway in a 2002 GMC Envoy at the time of the 7:20 a.m. accident, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Witnesses said they observed the SUV nearly hit a school bus head on. The GMC when went off the south side of State Road 64, traveling 166 feet in the grass before striking the corner of a guardrail. Police said the SUV then went airborne for 52 feet before landing across a large ditch.
The GMC rolled several times before stopping 101 feet away from its impact point.
Deputies credited seat belt use for preventing injury to Englert and her sister, Katelyn Englert, 13, also of the Kings Ridge Road address. Both teens were transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper as a precaution, police said.
A hospital spokeswoman said they were treated and released.
The St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Bob Luegers Motors wrecker assisted.
