KYANA — Two Knox County women were taken to the hospital after the SUV they occupied crashed into a tree Friday east of Kyana.
Vanessa A. Greemore, 59, of Vincennes, was westbound on State Road 64 in a 1997 Ford Expedition when the 4 p.m. accident occurred 750 feet east of Pine Ridge Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Greemore said she had swerved to miss a small animal that ran onto the roadway when her SUV went off the north side of the highway. The Expedition continued west along a steep ditch embankment, struck a concrete box culvert, continued through a cornfield and stopped after a head-on collision with a tree.
Greemore, who complained of shoulder pain, and her passenger, Anna M. Greemore, 31, who shared her Vincennes address and who complained of neck and shoulder pain, were transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper.
Both were treated and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
A deputy said both women were wearing seat belts and the proper use of those restraints greatly reduced the severity of the women’s injuries.
The crash totaled the SUV and caused minor damage to the box culvert and corn field, according to a deputy.
An Indiana conservation officer, the Schnellville Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted.
