MOUNT MERIDIAN -- A one-vehicle rollover accident Monday morning on U.S. 40 near the Putnam-Hendricks county line sent a Plainfield woman and her young son to the hospital.
Indiana State Police troopers and Putnam County emergency agencies responded to U.S. 40 at County Road 825 East, approximately 2.5 miles east of Mount Meridian, at 8:16 a.m. Monday.
The vehicle rolled over four times before coming to rest on its top.
Prior to arrival of emergency crews, Shircliff was able to undo the car's restraint system and free herself from the wreckage. She then extricated her eight-month-old son from his restraint system, a child safety seat that had been properly placed in the rear seating area of the car.
The mother and son were transported by Putnam County EMS to Hendricks Regional Health for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Kelsea Shircliff was treated for abrasions and neck pain, while infant son Ryan was treated for contusions and abrasions.
Trooper Edwards was assisted at the accident scene by ISP Major Brad Scully, the Jefferson Township Fire Department and Putnam County EMS.
