[ISP] Rollover Crash on I-64 Lands Vehicle in Creek
Start Date: 2/18/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/18/2014
Entry Description

Spencer County: A Velpen woman sustained minor injuries during a mid-morning rollover crash on Interstate 64.

Troopers report that at approximately 9:10 A.M., Catherine B. Gress, 29, Velpen, was traveling westbound on Interstate 64 near the 55 mile marker. Gress drove over a patch of ice, lost control of her 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV, and struck the guardrail. The low center of gravity of impact caused the vehicle to roll over the top of the guardrail and continue to roll approximately 170 feet, coming to rest on its side in a creek.

Gress suffered lacerations to her right hand and chin; however, was transported by helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville for further evaluation.

Interstate 64 was closed for approximately 30 minutes and was restricted to one lane of travel for about two hours while crews tended to Gress and removed the Chevrolet.

Investigators stated given the aggressive dynamics of a vehicle rollover, had Gress not been wearing a seatbelt, her injuries could have been more serious and grave.

The Indiana State Police was assisted on scene by the Dale Police Department, Carter Township Fire Department, and Spencer County EMS.
