Noblesville Woman Dies in Collision with Metal Pole

July 12, 2011

A 44-year-old Noblesville, Indiana, woman recently died when her car hit a metal pole in northern Hamilton County. Some say the accident may have been caused by a pothole on Strawtown Avenue at State Road 13. Police told WTHR that the two roads do not line up and that the roadway has a slight jog in it.

The accident occurred in the very early morning hours of June 27 when the woman crashed her white 1997 Ford Taurus into a metal pole and flipped her car. The woman, who delivered newspapers for The Herald Bulletin, was not wearing a seatbelt at the time and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say they found no evidence that the brakes were applied prior to the crash.

One woman left the following comment under the Indianapolis Star’s article on the crash: “I feel the need to say that I live on this road and personally know that at that JOG in the road there is a very large pot hole, I hit it once and lost a tire, my car ran into the exact ditch where flipped, had it not been for the fence, who knows.”
