Texting likely caused Carroll County crash

CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Texting may be to blame for a crash in Carroll County that sent two drivers to the hospital.

Sheriff Tony Burns said it happened just after 4 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Rockfield Road and the new State Road 25, or the Hoosier Heartland.

Burns said a female driver pulling onto the Hoosier Heartland didn’t yield to an oncoming car. Burns said she admitted she was texting and driving.

“We’re seeing a lot more of people driving inattentive. People need to be cautious and think about what they are doing and do their driving. If they need to text or something, they need to pull over and stop,” said Burns.

Both drivers were taken to IU Health Arnett Hospital with minor injuries.

The highway was closed for about 10 minutes while crews removed the cars from the median.
