Smith was transported to Putnam County Hospital for minor lacerations, abrasions, and complaint of pain. He was later transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for chest injuries. Seatbelt was in use.

The crash was investigated by ISP Trooper Jonathan Cumbie. Assisting were the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and Putnam County EMS.
