A crash on Jasper’s south side Wednesday night injured a Huntingburg mother and baby.
At 8:55 PM Wednesday, 15 year old Beronica Dubon of Huntingburg was traveling southbound on Meridian Road, just north of State Road 162.
Investigators believe Dubon failed to yield at the intersection of Meridian and SR162, and pulled her 2002 Dodge Stratus into the path of a westbound 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt, driven by 28 year old Morgan Schnarr of Jasper.
The impact of the Chevrolet into the Dodge caused Dubon’s unrestrained baby to be ejected from the vehicle. The Jasper Fire Department had to extricate Dubon from her drivers seat. Baby Dubon was transported by medical helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville, where she was listed in stable condition. Dubon was also transported by ambulance to St. Mary’s for injuries sustained, and was also listed in stable condition. Schnarr was taken to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for a laceration to her knee.
This crash remains under investigation by the Indiana State Police Crash Investigation Team. ISP was assisted by the Jasper Police and Fire Departments, the Dubos County Sheriffs Department, and Memorial Hospital EMS.
