2 women ejected in accident


Staff report



NEW MADISON — Two women were taken to the hospital early Saturday morning after sustaining injuries from being ejected from a car during an accident where speed and alcohol were believed to have been a factor.

On March 25 at approximately 2:56 a.m. Darke County Deputies responded to a residence in the 1600 block of Mills Road on a report of a woman who was knocking on a door intoxicated stating she was dropped off and needing a ride. Once the Deputy was on scene, he realized there was an injury crash and New Madison Fire and Tri-Village Rescue and Careflight was dispatched.

The preliminary investigation revealed a silver 2004 Chevy Cavalier occupied by two adult women was traveling westbound in the 1600 block of Mills road when the driver failed to negotiate a curve driving off the right side of the road and hitting and flipping over a guardrail and coming to rest in a field. Both women were ejected from the car.

One occupant was taken to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight for serious injuries, and the other occupant was transported to Reid Hospital in Richmond, Indiana. The driver is unknown at this time.

Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in this crash. The accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff’s Office.
