Driver escapes serious injury in rollover

RUSHVILLE — For the second time in a 24-hour period, Rushville resident Amanda Yager, 21, escaped serious injury when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident.

The first incident occurred shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the 2600 block of Orange Pike.

According to Rush County deputy sheriff Terry Drake, Yager was eastbound when a coughing spell caused her to lose control of her Pontiac Grand Prix. The vehicle left the south side of the road and became stuck in a field.

The second accident was more severe, causing extensive damage to the Rushville woman’s car. She required medical attention and caused extensive damage to a Rush County bridge.

Shortly after 6:30 p.m. Friday, Yager’s vehicle left CR 700E and struck a guardrail on the west side of a bridge.

At the time of the accident, Yager’s Pontiac was southbound, south of CR 250S.

The force of the impact dislodged the guardrail and caused a large section of the concrete embankment to be dislodged. The vehicle plunged into the ravine, causing it to come to rest on its top. The guardrail came to rest nearly 15 yards away.

Yager sustained only minor injuries. Following treatment at the scene, the Rushville woman was transfered to Rush Memorial Hospital for what were described as minor, non-life threatening injuries.

Assisting at the scene were units from the RCSD, Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department, RMH Ambulance and Davis Towing.
