[ISP] 10-Year-Old Girl Rides Bike into Path of Car

Entry Description

Clay County—This evening at 5:15, Indiana State Police and Clay County emergency agencies responded to a car versus bicycle crash at Lake and Columbus Streets in the town of Staunton. The crash injured a ten-year-old girl.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 2002 Saturn car, driven by Kay-Lynn Ethington, age 17, of Brazil, IN. was westbound on Columbus Street near Lake Street, when ten-year-old Brianna Robertson of Staunton, rode northbound into the path of Ethington’s car. The Ethington Saturn could not avoid striking Robertson. Speed appears to not be a factor in the crash.

Brianna Robertson was transported to Terre Haute Union Hospital with what is believed to be serious head, internal, and leg injuries. Brianna was not wearing a bicycle helmet, but wearing one is not required.

The crash was investigated by ISP Trooper Ian Portteus. Assisting were ISP Troopers David Petrowski and Kyle Hall, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Trans Care EMS, and Staunton Fire/Rescue.

No citations issued.
