Two Killed in Wreck on Old Lyons Road in Greene County, Indiana

Posted on Jan 29, 2012
Two people were killed in a head-on collision at the intersection of County Road 200 South and County Road 1025 West outside of Lyons, Indiana, on January 3, prompting many local officials to question the possibility that the speed limit on the road is too high.

According to Greene County Daily World, 23-year-old James Allen was driving a car east on Country Road 200 South (Old Lyons Road) with three passengers: his wife, Ashley Bailey-Allen, and his two daughters, four-year-old Katelynn and one-year-old Aubrey. An approaching vehicle, driven by 45-year-old Susan Olson of Jasonville, suddenly veered out of the lane, striking the oncoming car head on and killing both drivers.

The two drivers were pronounced dead at the scene of the fatal Indiana car accident, while Ashley was rushed to IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with serious multiple injuries. The two young children were rushed by ambulance to Riley Hospital for Children, also in Indianapolis. All three are expected to survive the crash but face long recoveries.

The cause of the Greene County crash is still under investigation as authorities await the results of toxicity tests conducted on both drivers.

The Indianapolis personal injury attorneys at Keller & Keller LLP send their heartfelt condolences to the accident victims in this case as well as to their family and friends.
