Four people were injured in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Billingsley Drive and U.S. 50 in Aurora, according to Indiana State Police.

At about 5:10 p.m., David Flanigan, 72, drove his 2004 Honda van from Billingsley Drive onto U.S. 50 to go east, said ISP Sgt. Matt Burkhardt. The Honda was struck by a westbound 1999 Plymouth van driven by Bambi Seabolt, 30, Lawrenceburg.

Flanigan, New Albany, Ind., suffered a minor head injury but refused transport to the hospital, said the ISP. Seabolt complained of chest pain and was taken to Dearborn County Hospital, Lawrenceburg.

Also taken to DCH with minor injuries were Jacob Kirby, 6, and Derick Kirby, 9, said police. In addition, two other children, ages 1 and 3, were taken to DCH as a precaution, though they had no visible injuries. The children all were passengers in the Plymouth van.

None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening, said Burkhardt.

The crash resulted in backed-up westbound traffic on U.S. 50 east of Ind. 48 in Lawrenceburg for about 45 minutes while emergency crews cleared the scene, said police.

Burkhardt was assisted by Aurora Police Department, Aurora Fire Department and Aurora Emergency Rescue, said the ISP. The crash remains under investigation.
