Girl dies in fatal crash at dangerous Brownsburg area intersection

BROWNSBURG, IN (October 2nd, 2019) – A crash at a known dangerous intersection resulted in three victims transported. One of the three victims, a juvenile girl, died from her injuries.

Brownsburg firefighters and paramedics were alerted to the crash at State Road 267 and County Road 1000 North at 4:15 pm, October 2nd, 2019. Additional reports from callers on the scene led dispatchers to send additional resources even before our first units arrived. Although 3 crashes were involved in the crash, one car received only minor damage. The other two vehicles sustained substantial damage. In addition to our units, an emergency department physician responded to the scene as well.

A spokeswoman for Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office, Captain Amanda Goings, said in a press release Wednesday night that two juveniles in a Mercury minivan were hurt in the crash and taken to an Indianapolis hospital where one of them died.

The Sheriff’s office stated that the minivan was traveling east on County Road 1000 North and, according to a witness, did not stop at a stop sign at State Road 267. Instead, the minivan went into the intersection and struck a Chevrolet pickup. After they crashed, the minivan and pickup moved eastward through the intersection and made contact with a Pontiac car.

The driver of the pickup, the only person in the truck, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
