A Shelbyville woman was flown by a medical helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital after suffering injuries in a single-vehicle crash in northeast Bartholomew County, police said.
Bartholomew County Sheriff’s deputies received a call about a personal-injury accident at County Road 500N east of County Road 900E, Hope, at 3:58 p.m. Monday. Deputy Andrew Whipker located a Kia SUV in a drainage ditch when he arrived, spokesman Judy Jackson said.
The SUV had been traveling west on 500N when it left the roadway and traveled about 100 feet northwest through a field before colliding with trees and a drainage ditch embankment.
The driver, 52-year-old Carolyn Logston, told deputies that something ran in front of her vehicle and caused her to leave the roadway.

A hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday that Logston was in fair condition, and stable.
