Cloverdale Woman Injured Sunday Night In Single-Vehicle Accident

Indiana State Police and Putnam County emergency agencies responded to a single-vehicle rollover crash on County Road 900 South, just west of County Road 425 East near Cloverdale shortly after 11 p.m on Sunday, May 4.

Preliminary investigation revealed Lauren Glass, 26, of Cloverdale, was operating her 2001 Chevrolet Blazer eastbound on CR 900 South near CR 425 East. The SUV traveled off the right edge of the roadway, struck a tree, and continued east, rolling over multiple times. The SUV came to rest on its top in the westbound lane. Ms. Glass was able to exit her vehicle and began walking toward Cloverdale when she was picked up by a passerby approximately one-half mile from the scene. The passerby called 911 and returned Ms. Glass to the scene.

According to a press release issued by the ISP, during the crash investigation, officers noticed signs of possible intoxication. A blood test at Putnam County Hospital revealed her blood alcohol level was .18 percent. Ms. Glass was undergoing treatment for her injuries at Putnam County Hospital, the press release notes, and will be summoned to Putnam County Court on operating while intoxicated and various traffic related charges.

“The fact that Ms. Glass suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and survived, is the direct result of Glass wearing her seatbelt,” commented investigating officer ISP Trooper Jonathan Cumbie.
