ELKHART – An Elkhart woman suffered a broken arm and was cited for driving without insurance after a rollover crash on U.S. 20 near C.R. 17 Monday, Dec. 16.
The single car crash happened at about 11:30 a.m. and caused police to reroute traffic from the area until about 12:45 p.m.
Indiana State Police officers responded to the incident and a news release was issued by the agency Monday evening stating the driver, Mackayla D. Que-Lazaro, Elkhart, was driving a 2000 Jeep Cherokee too fast for the slick road conditions. Que-Lazaro lost control of the vehicle and hit the center concrete barrier before the Jeep flipped onto its roof.
Que-Lazaro was taken by ambulance to Elkhart General Hospital. In addition to the broken arm, she was also treated for head and neck injuries.
The state police were assisted at the scene by the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department and the Concord Township Fire Department.
