A local driver avoided serious injury after an accident that shut down a portion of Coonhunters Road Wednesday afternoon.

Batesville Police received a 911 call from a witness around 12:30 p.m.

Dawn Spurlock, of Batesville, was driving south near C.R. 1350 N when she lost control of her blue Chevrolet suburban and hit a ditch.

Crash investigators say she over corrected and went left of center striking a utility pole. The vehicle came to rest on the driver’s side against a tree.

Spurlock, who police say was not seriously injured, was transported to Margaret Mary Health for a medical evaluation.

The road was shut down following the accident due to live wires on the roadway.

Investigating officer Jamie Straber was assisted on the scene by Batesville Fire & EMS.

22nd Annual Metamora Grad School... @ Old School Grounds Shelter House
Sep 5 @ 12:00 pm
This is a casual reunion for anyone who ever attended Metamora Grade School, and an excellent opportunity to reminisce about the good ‘ole days at Metamora School. Take yourself back in time as you visit with some of your former schoolmates. The Metamora School days are remembered by many from this era as days of hardships, yet they also remain as some of their fondest memories of youth. The school has been gone about 36 years now, since about 1979. Please feel welcome to bring your family, old photographs or class pictures, or any old school mementos. All ages are welcome. Attendance in past years has ranged from 25 – 100. This event is very informal and will begin with a pitch-in lunch at noon. Dress appropriately for visiting at the outside, open shelter. Restrooms are available a couple hundred yards away at the State Building. Please bring a covered dish and your own beverage. Let’s keep our memories of the old school alive as long as we’re alive. Call Jim Hunter at 812-350-8253 for more information.
