Report: Woman crashes vehicle after medical issue

A Bloomington woman was transported to Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital after her vehicle went over an embankment on State Road 135 North Sept. 1.

Cheri J. Hazel, 36, told Lt. Mike Moore with the Brown County Sheriff’s Department that she must have had a seizure or passed out before the accident.

Hazel told Moore the next thing she knew she had hit a tree over the embankment on 135 North, north of Nashville.

Hazel and her passenger, Betty J. Kelley, 51, Bloomington, were transported to the hospital for pain.

Hazel’s vehicle was towed. Both Hazel and Kelley were wearing seat belts. Hazel was ticketed for driving while suspended and for not having car insurance.
