DEKALB COUNTY, IN - Authorities say another vehicle rolled over on I-69 Thursday evening after the driver tried to get out of the way of an illegal U-turn.
DeKalb County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to mile marker 323 on I-69 on a reported crash at around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Reports indicate a northbound driver, identified as Abigail Swager, age 19 of Garrett, was driving on I-69 when the vehicle in front of her slowed to make an illegal U-turn.
Swager told authorities she tried to stop the vehicle in time but was unable to, even when she tried to switch lanes. Investigators say Swager over corrected causing the vehicle to go into the median and hit the cable barriers. The impact caused the vehicle to roll over landing on its side.
Swager had minor cuts on her hand, but refused medical treatment. Deputies said she was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
