Indiana State Police say an Avon, Indiana, woman died yesterday evening, Sunday, December 8th, from injuries she received in a three vehicle crash.  Preliminary investigation by Trooper Jason Madison revealed that at approximately 5:15 p.m., yesterday, a Jeep driven by Ashley A Rogers, 28, was southbound on I-65 at the 225 ½ mile marker, approximately 4 ½ miles south of the Demotte/Roselawn exit, and lost control for unknown reasons. Troopers from the Lowell Post say road conditions were snow covered and slippery at the time of the crash.
Police say the driver of a 2003 Ford was south bound and came over the hill crest and saw the Jeep spinning in the roadway, swerved to the left to avoid the Jeep but was hit on the front right side of the Ford. The Ford came to rest on the inside shoulder. Police say the driver of the Ford was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt.
A  semi driver heading southbound came over the hill crest, authorities say, saw the Jeep in the right lane, and could not avoid hitting it. The semi went off the interstate, down into a ditch and into the fence line approximately 50 feet off the road. The Kenworth was loaded with approximately 45,000 pounds of Resin. No load was lost. The semi driver was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.
Police say Rogers was found lying on the inside shoulder next to the concrete barrier wall, and it's not known at this time if she was ejected or hit while she was outside of her Jeep.  Rogers was taken to Jasper County Hospital in Rensselaer and was being transported to a Lafayette Hospital when complications arose and was rushed back to Jasper County where she died at the hospital.  Assisting: Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Trooper Dale Turner, Keener Township Fire and EMS.
