HOWE - A crash Friday night on State Road 9 at the Super 8 Motel injured a Howe woman.
The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department says Christa McClain of Howe was southbound on State Road 9 and tried to pass on the right a vehicle that was waiting to make a left turn into the motel.
McClain’s car struck the side of the waiting vehicle, causing the McClain car to roll over several times. It came to rest on its tires, but the engine caught fire which was quickly extinguished.
Medics transported McClain to Parkview LaGrange Hospital for treatment of head and back injuries. A child in her vehicle was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The other driver was not injured.
Howe firefighters assisted sheriff’s deputies and medics at the scene.
A post by the sheriff’s department on Facebook did not say if officers took any enforcement action.
