GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Just after 6 a.m. on Friday, a crash on State Road 67 near County Road 700 West claimed one life and injured another.

Officials report a 2005 Dodge van driven by Dakota L. Burnette, 26 of Oolitic, was traveling southwest on S.R. 67 as a semi driven by Timothy D. Stines, 44 of Bedford, was traveling northeast.

For unknown reasons, Burnette crossed the center line and sideswiped the semi. The van then spun partially off the highway as the semi came to a stop partially blocking the southbound lane of S.R. 67.

Burnette was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the van was taken to Greene County General Hospital and treated for injuries.

Stines was uninjured.
