?Washington County woman is latest fatality in I-65 cross-over accident PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

???    For the second time this year, emergency vehicles responded to calls of a fatal accident on Interstate 65 between Scottsburg and Austin that involved a vehicle crossing the grassy median and striking a semi-tractor-trailer.
    This time, the mishap occurred just south of the Austin interchange late Monday morning, July 21. A woman motorist, identified as Deborah Gunn, 55, Pekin, was headed south on I-65 on a clear morning around 11:45 a.m. when her silver-colored 1996 Ford Taurus suddenly crossed the median and struck the left rear tandems of a northbound semi-tractor operated by Kenneth J. Yeadon, 55, Mooresville.
    Yeadon, who was not injured in the accident, apparently saw the car crossing and slowed and then tried to avoid contact by going nearly off the road. Nothing worked; the car went under the rear trailer and disintegrated as the truck continued north.
