Accident injures 3 on U.S. 50

Three young adults were injured in an accident on U.S. 50 Thursday evening.

According to an accident report from the Daviess County Sheriff's department, Corinne M. Butler, 20, Greeenfield, was driving a 1994 Buick Century south on CR 300W, near the U.S. 50 intersection.

Butler told deputies she was unfamiliar with the area and could not stop at the intersection in time. She went through the stop sign and hit a 2007 Hyundai Sonata, driven by Bryan J. Blubaum, 26, 6 Woodland Court.

The Buick came to rest in the middle of the intersection while the Hyundai spun around and stopped in the median. Blubaum was injured and a passenger, Alicia Perkins, 20, 207 Green Acres Road, was thrown from the vehicle.

Blubaum and Perkins were taken to Daviess Community Hospital and later airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville. Blubaum had head pain and Perkins had severe injuries to her upper body.

Butler was taken to Daviess Community Hospital for head pain. She was not under the influence at the scene and was later cited for reckless driving.

According to a spokesperson with St. Mary's, Blubaum is listed in good condition while Perkins is in serious condition. Butler was treated and released from Daviess Community Hospital. Damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.
