NORTH VERNON — A North Vernon woman died after her car collided with a semi at State Road 7 and State Road 750 at about 9:11 a.m. Friday.

Sonya Y. Craft, 76, died after her 2008 Mercury Sable hit a semi in the rear axle as the semi was clearing the intersection, said Sgt. Andrew Richmond, North Vernon Police spokesman.

Following the accident, Craft was taken to an Indianapolis hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, Richmond said.

The semi was driven by Michael F. Wright, La Peer, Michigan, Richmond said.

North Vernon Police said the accident was the third that occurred at, or near, the intersection of the two highways in the last four days.
