Local Indiana police reported that the woman, Lisha Moffett of Shoals, Indiana, apparently lost control of her car while negotiating a curve on Highway 50 west of Loogootee. Both she and her passenger, a young boy named Rolen Wilson, were ejected from the vehicle as the car drove into a ditch and then flipped. Wilson was Moffett’s grandson.
Moffett died at the scene of the Indiana car accident while Wilson died at Daviess Community Hospital after being rushed to medical treatment by emergency responders. Moffett was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the IN car crash. While Wilson was strapped into a booster seat in the front of the car, it is not known if the car seat was properly installed.
