2 hurt in Hart Co. collision
A Hart County woman and Indiana man were injured in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. 31-W in Hart County at approximately 9:03 a.m. Saturday.
Driver James F. Moore, 73, of Cloverdale, Ind., was treated at Caverna Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries; a passenger in the vehicle, Sharon D. Moore, 72, also of Cloverdale was not injured in the collision, according to a KSP press release. Neither occupant of them was wearing a seat belt, according to the statement.
The driver of the other vehicle, Elizabeth A. Sanders, 47, of Munfordville, who was wearing her seat belt at the time of the collision, was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the press release.
Through his investigation, KSP Trooper Jonathan McChesney determined that Moore crossed the center line of the highway “as a result of a coughing episode or possible medical condition,” which led to his vehicle’s striking Sanders’ vehicle head on, the press release said, adding that alcohol is not suspected as a factor.
Trooper Jeremy Smith assisted in the investigation.
