CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Camden woman who was critically injured late Thursday morning in a crash on the Hoosier Heartland remains in an Indianapolis hospital. This Carroll County intersection continues to be a danger to motorists, deputies said.
The intersection of the Hoosier Heartland Corridor and County Road 800 West was again the scene of a crash which critically injured 29-year-old Jennifer Baxter, of Camden. She was airlifted to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis where she currently remains. Earlier this week, Christopher Waller was hit on his moped by an SUV and later died.
Carroll County Maj. Tobe Leazenby said at 11:25 a.m., Carroll County emergency responders were called to the scene of a two vehicle crash. He said Baxter was north bound on County Road 800 West and failed to yield to Anthony Wagner, 53, of Monticello, who was south bound on the Corridor and approaching the intersection. Leazenby said Baxtar drove into the path of Wagner and that’s when the vehicles collided.
According to Leazenby, both drivers were trapped in their vehicles and had to be extricated by fire crews.
Baxter was airlifted to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis with critical injuries. Wagner was transported to IU Arnett Hospital in Lafayette with unknown injuries. He has since been treated and released.
Deputies said they do not believe alcohol or drugs to be a factor in the crash. Carroll County Sheriff’s Office said the investigation is ongoing.
