KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – One Dugger woman was injured in a Friday morning crash on State Road 59.

Indiana State Police responded to State Road 59 just north of State Road 67 for a single vehicle accident.

Officials report Thomas Cody, Jr., 31 of Dugger, was driving a 2002 Chevrolet car south on SR 59 when the vehicle left the road on the east side. The vehicle hit a culvert and then struck a tree head-on.

After an investigation, officials are reporting Cody was distracted when the accident occurred.

He was wearing a seat belt and was not injured. The passenger in the vehicle, Amanda Salesman, 30 of Dugger, was not wearing a seatbelt and had injuries to her head and chest.

“The use of a seat belt would have reduced or prevented Salesman’s injuries,” Master Trooper Wilson stated.

Salesman was taken to Greene County Hospital and is currently being treated for her injuries.
