Entry Description

Warren County-Today at approximately 8:18 a.m, Indiana State Police at Lafayette was dispatched to US 136 near County Road 900 west in Warren County for a one vehicle crash.

Trooper Josh Edwards of the Indiana State Police advised that a 2004 gold Kia Optima was westbound on US 136 when the driver Lisa S. Baldwin, 48 years old from Danville, IL left the road on the right side.  She apparently over corrected to the left and went across the highway, struck the ditch on the south side of the roadway and started to roll.  As the Kia was rolling, Baldwin was ejected from the vehicle.  The Kia continued to roll and came to rest on its wheels on top of Baldwin.  She was pronounced deceased at the scene by Joe Gritten, the Fountain County Coroner.  Alcohol and or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash.  A seatbelt does not appear to have been used at the time of the crash.  The investigation is continuing.

“Wearing a seatbelt keeps you inside of the vehicle,” Trooper Edwards explains.  “It is usually the safest place to be in a crash!” 

Assisting at the scene were the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, Vermillion County Sheriff’s Department, Perrysville Fire and Rescue and Covington Fire and Rescue.
