Carlisle Woman Seriously Injured in Sullivan Co. Accident

Indiana State Police say an elderly Carlisle woman was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon when a dump truck hit her car at the intersection of US 41 and State Road 58 in Sullivan County.

Police say 83-year-old Colleen Kennedy was eastbound on State Road 58 and pulled into the path of the dump truck, which was northbound on 41.

Kennedy was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of suspected head injuries and fractures.

Police say she was not wearing a seatbelt.

Kennedy was cited for failure to yield the right of way.

The driver of the dump truck, 61-year-old Robert King of Terre Haute, escaped injury.

However, King was arrested after it was learned he was wanted on a probation violation warrant out of Vigo County.
