A Versailles woman was killed in a head-on collision Sunday in Decatur County and a second driver was sent to an Indianapolis hospital with serious injuries. The crash happened at about 10:15 a.m.

52-year-old Rebecca S. Cole was driving southbound on U.S. 421 just north of the Ripley/Decatur County line when she crossed the centerline and crashed into a pickup driven by 60-year-old Roger C. Horan of Greensburg.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, spokesman with the Indiana State Police, says that Cole was pronounced dead at the scene by the Decatur County coroner’s office.

Horan was flown by helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment.

The road was closed for about two hours to investigate and to clean up from the crash.
