Lafayette girl injured in single vehicle crash on CR 175 W

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A 16 year old Lafayette girl was pinned in her vehicle this morning after she lost control of the vehicle and struck a utility pole on County Road 175 West, just south of County Road 400 South.

Shortly after 7:00a on Friday, April 22nd, members of the Tippecanoe Sheriff’s Office, Shadeland Fire and Rescue, Wea Fire and Rescue, and the Tippecanoe Emergency Ambulance Service, were dispatched to the one car personal injury crash on CR 175 W.

Evidence at the scene indicates that a 1997 Honda passenger car, driven by Amy Corley (16) of Lafayette was traveling southbound on C.R. 175 West when, for reasons unknown at this time, her car left the right side of the roadway and hit a utility pole. Corley, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was pinned inside and had to be extricated by rescue personnel.

According to a statement released by the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office, Corley sustained injuries to her head, arms, legs, and was transported to Saint Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis by a Stat Flight helicopter. The investigation continues and speed appears to be a contributing factor in the crash.
