PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. - Two people were hurt after an early morning crash Saturday in Putnam County, state police confirmed.
Indiana State Police (ISP) said at 1 a.m., troopers and Putnam County emergency crews headed to the intersection of state roads 75 and 240 to respond to a two-car wreck.
Investigators said a passenger car, driven by Amouzou Kokou, 34, of Indianapolis, was headed east on State Road 240 when Kokou failed to stop for the stop sign at State Road 75. That’s when, ISP said, her car hit a northbound passenger car driven by Christine Wold, 51, of Danville, Ind.
ISP said both cars then headed into a nearby drainage ditch before coming to a rest.
Kokou was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital with injuries, and Wold was transported to Hendricks Regional Hospital. ISP said both women were in good condition.
ISP cited Kokou for disregarding a stop sign.
