Jennings County Woman Seriously Injured in Crash on US 50 Near Hayden


Thursday at about 4:15 pm, a 24-year-old Hayden woman was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash on US 50 in Jennings County.

The initial investigation by Senior Trooper David Owsley indicated that a 2006 Honda Civic being driven by Corey Freeman, age 24 of Hayden, Indiana was traveling southbound on CR 580 West approaching US 50 in western Jennings County.

The investigation determined that Freeman disregarded the stop sign at the intersection.  Freeman’s vehicle entered US 50 into the path of an eastbound 2015 Chevy Silverado pulling a trailer, driven by Cody St John, age 21, of North Vernon, Indiana.

After colliding, both vehicles left the roadway before coming to rest.

Freeman was extricated from her vehicle before being flown to an Indianapolis area hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

St John was taken to Schneck Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

US 50 was closed for nearly two hours for crash investigation and clean up.

This crash remains under investigation.

Trp. Owsley was assisted at the scene by the Indiana State Police-Versailles Crash Reconstruction Team, Jennings County Sheriff’s Office, Jennings County EMS, Spencer Fire Department, Scipio Geneva Fire Department, and StatFlight Medical Helicopter.
