BRANCHVILLE — A Perry County woman died Saturday after having been injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday evening on State Road 37 near the Mogan Ridge Road turnoff.
Sharon James, 51, Tell City, passed away Saturday evening at University of Louisville Hospital from injuries related to the accident, according to the Perry County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office was called to the report of a personal injury accident between Branchville and Gatchel at 6:37 p.m. Friday.
Deputies determined James Brownlee, 29, Tell City, was southbound on State Road 37 in a white Pontiac when the car went left of center and collided head on with a northbound Ford Ranger driven by James.
Both drivers had to be extricated and both suffered what appeared to be extensive injuries, according to police.
James and Brownlee were initially treated at the scene and then were immediately transported to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, according to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office says deputies are still investigating and will release more information when it becomes available.
The Indiana State Police, Perry County EMS/Rescue, Central Perry Volunteer Fire Department, Tell City Police Department, a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer, Spencer County EMS, Perry County Central Dispatch and Ohio Valley Towing assisted.
Sheriff Alan Malone thanked all the first responders and dispatchers for their quick response. Just prior to the State Road 37 crash, Malone said, deputies and first responders had rushed to a personal injury accident on I-64. That crash investigation was taken over by state police.
