A Jennings County woman was sent to an Indianapolis hospital after a Friday morning crash. The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department says that deputies responded to the area of East 100 South/South 525 East at 8:11 a.m.

Upon arrival, deputies located two vehicles in a cornfield, both with serious damage. They say the driver of a pickup truck, 32-year-old Eric Elliott, of Columbus, was traveling northbound on 525 E when he approached the intersection, did not stop, and hit the driver’s side of a second vehicle driven by 26-year-old Jessica Rudd, of North Vernon. Elliott was transported to Columbus Regional Health. Rudd was taken to IU Methodist Hospital. A passenger in Rudd’s vehicle, 78-year-old Leila Carnahan, of Westport, was also transported to Columbus Regional Health.
