An Indiana State Police Trooper and the drivers of two other vehicles sustained minor injuries Sunday when the trooper’s vehicle was struck while executing a traffic stop on U.S. 421 south of Versailles, Indiana.

The crash occured at about 9:45 a.m. Nov. 3, as Senior Trooper Kyle Black was conducting a traffic stop on a 2002 Dodge Caravan being driven northbound by Barbara Ann Matis, 48, of Madison, Indiana, on U.S. 421 near County Road 750 South in southern Ripley County.

Black’s unmarked vehicle was positioned behind Matis’ vehicle on the shoulder of U.S. 421 with his emergency lights activated when a northbound 2013 Chevrolet Traverse driven by Mary Ann Holman, 77, of Holton, Indiana, collided with the rear of Black’s vehicle, which was then pushed into Matis’ vehicle.

Debris from Holman’s vehicle struck Black, who was standing outside of his vehicle. He sustained an injury to his leg and was taken to Margaret Mary Hospital in Batesville, Indiana, where he was treated and released. Holman was taken to King’s Daughters’ Hospital in Madison to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. Matis complained of pain but declined to be taken for further medical treatment.

The investigation is ongoing.
