Driver hurt after rear-end crash on 135 North

A Brown County woman was injured Feb. 27 after her car was rear-ended in the 1500 block of State Road 135 North.

Coltten A. Lee, 19, of Brown County, told police he was traveling north on 135 just before 8:30 a.m. and didn’t see a vehicle stopped in front of him. He rear-ended a vehicle driven by Katrina L. Bardsley, 45, according to an accident report by Nashville Chief of Police Ben Seastrom.

Bardsley told police she was waiting to pull into a driveway in the 1500 block when she was hit by Lee’s vehicle.

She was taken by ambulance to Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital for bruising to her face. Lee was not injured.

Bardsley was wearing a seat belt, but it was marked “unknown” if Lee was wearing one at the time of the crash. Both vehicles were towed.
