Woman Hurt in Accident After Reaching For Phone
Wednesday Aug 23, 2017 4:19pm
I-69 at the 332 mile-marker • Auburn, IN

Authorities say that a Garrett woman was hospitalized when the vehicle she was driving veered into the median of Interstate 69 after she reportedly dropped her phone.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department says that emergency crews were called around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to the northbound lanes of I-69, three miles north of Auburn, on a report of a crash. Upon arrival deputies found a "badly damaged" 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix hanging over the cable barrier in the median.

Police said that 26-year-old Cassondra Jones of Garrett was headed northbound on the interstate in the Pontiac when she dropped her phone. Rports indicate that as Jones tried to recover the device, she lost control of the vehicle and sped off the roadway and into the median in the area of mile-marker 332.

Here vehicle hit the cable barrier in the median and rolled 4-6 times before it came to rest.

Jones was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne with leg pain. Police reports said she was not wearing a seat belt.
