Medical Condition Blamed on Sullivan Crash

A 70-year-old Linton woman was injured Wednesday morning when she ran a stop sign in Sullivan.

Genevieve Stone’s car ran off the road and hit several trees and an electrical box before coming to a rest in a ditch.

The crash happened on State Road 54 at South Section Street.

Stone was taken to Terre Haute’s Union Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Police say their investigation revealed that Stone failed to observe the stop sign due to a preexisting medical condition.

Power to the south side of Sullivan was shut down temporarily until Duke Energy could make repairs.
