Two dead, 12 hurt in five crashes

Traffic accidents in Boone County killed two people and injured 12 others in fewer than 18 hours Thursday and Friday.

Whitestown Police at press time had not released the identity of a person who died in a crash between two SUVs at Indiana 267 and Indianapolis Road about 2 p.m. Thursday.

The victim was the driver of a Chevrolet Suburban that was in the path of a GMC Yukon, Whitestown Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ed Savage said. A passenger in the Suburban was taken to St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis, in critical condition. The occupants of the Suburban are believed to be related.

The Yukon’s driver was taken to Hendricks Regional Health, Danville, with minor injuries, Savage said.

About 18 hours earlier, Lee B. Cummings, Crawfordsville, died instantly about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday in a three-vehicle crash at Indiana 32 and Ind. 75 in Dover, Boone County Sheriff Cpl. Chris Burcham said.

Cummings was driving a 2005 Chrysler mini-van west on Ind. 32, Burcham said.

Thomas Quinn of South Carolina, northbound on Ind. 75, turned his semi-truck and flatbed trailer east onto Ind. 32, colliding head-on with a flatbed wrecker driven by Joshua Matthews, Illinois.

The impact shoved Matthews’ wrecker across the center line and into the mini-van, Burcham said.

Donna Crowder, Crawfordsville, a passenger in the mini-van, was taken to IU Health-Methodist Hospital where she was in stable condition Thursday. Neither Quinn nor Matthews were hurt.
