A crash on I-65 killed a Brownstown woman earlier today.
At approximately 12:10 pm, the Indiana State Police and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department responded to a two vehicle personal injury crash on I-65 near the 55 mile marker.
Kimberly Sneed, 47, Brownstown, died later at Columbus Regional Hospital.
As a result of the crash, two others suffered serious injuries.
The initial investigation by Trooper Matt Holley and Sgt. Stephen Wheeles indicated that a silver 2009 Honda Civic being driven by Kimberly Sneed, age 47, Brownstown, Indiana was merging onto northbound I-65 from northbound State Road 11 when she lost control of the vehicle.
The vehicle spun before entering the northbound lanes of I-65. Sneed’s vehicle was struck head-on by a blue 2013 Honda CRV being driven by Anthony Bonadonna, age 72, Arlington Heights, Illinois.
As a result of the collision, Sneed was transported by ambulance to Columbus Regional Hospital where she soon succumbed to her injuries.
Anthony Bonadonna and his wife, Diana Bonadonna, age 56, were both transported to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Indiana before being transferred to an Indianapolis area hospital for treatment of their serious injuries.
Their conditions are unknown at this time.
The northbound lanes of I-65 were closed for approximately two hours for crash investigation and cleanup. It is unknown if road conditions at the time played a role in the crash.
The Sneed family has been notified.
The Indiana State Police was assisted by Deputies Adam Nicholson and Rob Henley with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, the Seymour Police Department, Seymour Fire Department, Jackson County EMS, and Hampton’s Wrecker Service.
