Information from Indiana State Police -
Ripley County: Saturday afternoon one person was killed and one injured in a two car crash near the Versailles State Park entrance. According to Trooper Matt Holley at approximately 2:30 afternoon a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by 23 year old Mark Wesley Brax of Columbia, SC was eastbound on U.S. 50 just east of the entrance to the Versailles State Park when he lost control in the heavy rain and began to skid sideways. The Grand Prix then skidded into the westbound lane when a westbound 2011 Toyota Highlander driven by 35 year old Donielle R. Stewart of Cincinnati, OH struck the Grand Prix broadside on the passenger side causing extensive damage to both vehicles. Brax was pronounced dead at the scene and Stewart suffered compound fractures to her ankles and as well as leg injuries. Tpr. Holley believes Brax was operating his vehicle too fast for the wet road conditions which may have caused him to hydroplane then losing control of his vehicle. Tpr. Holley also commented Brax was a student at the University of Cincinnati.
The crash remains under investigation. Tpr. Holley was assisted at the scene by Ripley County Sheriffs deputies, Rescue 69, Ripley County Medic, and the Ripley County Coroners Office.
