LADOGA -- A one-vehicle crash early Saturday sent a Greencastle High School student to the hospital.
Indiana State Police responded to an accident at approximately 4 a.m. Saturday involving Alyssa Nichols, 17, of Greencastle. The wreck took place on U.S. 231 near Montgomery C.R. 1000S.
Nichols' 2000 Honda left the roadway and struck a cement barrier with the front and driver's side. The heavy front-end damage left the vehicle totaled.
Despite sustaining a head injury and possible broken ribs, ISP Trooper Ryan Royer said she made her way to a residence just north of the scene to call authorities. Her mobile phone had been damaged in the accident.
When authorities arrived on the scene, Nichols was in and out of consciousness due to the head injury. She was initially transported to St. Clare Hospital in Crawfordsville before being transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis due to the extent of the injury.
While she was initially listed in critical condition, a call to Methodist on Sunday afternoon revealed Nichols had been released.
Trooper Royer said the investigation is ongoing, and it has not been determined if alcohol was a factor.
"I don't know the specifics of why or how or anything. I'm waiting until I do an interview with (Nichols)," he said.
Also responding to the accident were representatives from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, local fire and EMS personnel and Froedge's Wrecker Service.
