A 3-year-old Seymour girl died this morning in a crash on U.S. 31 near Crothersville, according to the Indiana State Police.
21-year-old Brent Sawyer of Crothersville was driving south on U.S 31 near Jackson County Road 500S at about 12:40 a.m. when he lost control of his SUV and crossed the centerline and crashed head-on into a van driven by 30-year-old Devin P. Bevers.
Bevers’ daughter, 3-year-old Tavaya, was in a car seat in the back seat of the van and was seriously injured. She was taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour where she died, says Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, with the state police.
The drivers both sustained minor injuries in the crash and were checked out by medical personnel.
