 ISPWarrick County (Tennyson): A broken water main, combined with frigid nighttime temperatures, resulted in a Wednesday evening single vehicle crash that injured a Dale woman.

Troopers from the Jasper Post reported that at approximately 9:30 P.M. (Central Time), Johanna Leslie, 22, Dale, was westbound on State Road 68 near North Line Road in her 2004 Mercury sedan. Unknown to Leslie, a water main had broken in the area, causing water to cover the roadway. The cold temperatures and brisk wind had frozen the water, which in turn created an extremely slick surface. Leslie lost control of her Mercury on the ice, slid across the opposite lane of travel and left the roadway. The Mercury continued west, crossing back over SR 68, down a ditch, and came to rest after striking a tree.

Leslie was flown to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville for a head injury. Troopers believe there was nearly $10,000 damage to Leslie’s vehicle.

Both INDOT and Tennyson were on scene to resolve the frozen section of roadway and the disrupted water main. State Road 68 was closed for nearly three hours while crews cleared the scene and made the highway drivable.

  1. Isn’t there a tavern in Tennyson known for some of the best fried chicken in S. Indiana?
