Entry Description

Clay County—This afternoon at 2:50, Indiana State Police troopers and Clay County emergency agencies responded to a two-vehicle crash in the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the 24 mile marker.

Preliminary investigation revealed a westbound orange Honda passenger car, driven by 50-year-old Jerry E. Roberts of Indianapolis, IN., was westbound on I-70 and struck the rear of a gold, 2002, Toyota, Avalon, driven by 21-year-old Leigha N. Horvath of Coatsville, IN. The impact forced the vehicles off the north side of the roadway with the Roberts vehicle overturning.

Witnesses had reported the Roberts vehicle may have been speeding and weaving in and out of traffic prior to the crash.

Both drivers were transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for treatment; Roberts for facial lacerations and Horvath for neck and back pain.

Roberts was cited for reckless driving, unsafe lane movement, and following too close.

The passing lane remained open, but the driving lane was closed for nearly one hour for crash investigation and clean-up.

ISP Master Trooper Troy Cobb investigated the crash. Assisting were multiple ISP troopers, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Posey and Jackson Township Fire/Rescue, and Trans Care EMS.
