Three people were injured, one seriously, when a driver lost control of his vehicle on Ind. 56 just southwest of Aurora, according to Indiana State Police.

Edward Smith, 53, Rising Sun, was driving east on Ind. 56 near Lighthouse Point Marina at about 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, when his 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo went completely left of center, according to ISP Sgt. Matt Burkhardt. Susan Blanton, 31, Greendale, was going west but swerved her 2005 Chrysler van into the eastbound lane trying to avoid a collision, but the van was struck head on by the Monte Carlo, said police.
