A Versailles man died and two others were injured early Sunday following a single vehicle accident on S.R. 129 just north of C.R. 300N, authorities said.

According to the Indiana State Police, a 2001 Dodge mini van driven by Zachary Smith, 32, of Versailles was traveling north and “reportedly weaving all over the roadway” when the crash occurred around 3:30 a.m.

“The van left the west side of S.R. 129 and entered a ditch where it overturned several times ejecting the driver and the front seat passenger, 54-year-old Jessie Windell of Versailles,” said ISP Public Information Officer Sgt. Noel Houze.

Also in the vehicle was Casey Sentell, 23, of Versailles.

Both passengers were transported to Margaret Mary Health and treated for back and neck pain. Smith was also transported to the hospital where he did en route.

Houze reported, “Investigators believe speed and alcohol were factors in the crash and the crash was not weather related.”
