Paoli Man Crashes During Rain on US 150


On July 22nd, 2020, at approximately 06:27 A.M., the Washington County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a motor vehicle crash with injury on U.S. Highway 150, near the intersection of State Road 66, according to Deputy Lucas Gray. 

The crashed vehicle was a GMC Sierra pickup truck that flipped over and was resting on its top.

The driver was identified as Scott Jones of Paoli.

Jones advised he was driving Eastbound on U.S. 150 when the rear tires of his vehicle lost traction causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

The vehicle then ran off of the north side of the roadway and flipped onto its top. There was heavy rain in the area at the time and hydroplaning is believed to have been a factor.

Jones was transported to IU Health in Paoli for a complaint of pain.

Jones was wearing his seatbelt.

Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Posey
Township Fire Department, Washington County EMS, and Wilcox Wrecker Service all responded to the accident.
