A 54-year-old Indianapolis woman was killed in an automobile accident at the intersection of County Roads 100 South and 400 East.

Police say Sherry Dennis was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Millie Cline, 52, of Indianapolis. Cline was traveling northbound on C.R. 400 E., in a 2005 gray Subaru Legacy at about 11:20 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. She failed to stop at the intersection of C.R. 100 S. and was T-boned by Patricia Greger, 78, of Zionsville, who was eastbound. Greger, police said, had the right-of-way and Cline pulled out in front of her.

In addition to Dennis, Cline had two other passengers – Teresa Treat of Indianapolis, and Rodney Amonette, 3, also of Indianapolis. Along with Cline, the passengers were transported to St. Vincent Hospital to be checked out but appear to not have been injured.

Dennis was sitting in the back seat behind the driver and had to be extricated from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Greger was also transported to St. Vincent Hospital to be treated for leg pain.

Boone County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sergeant Chris Burcham said the early investigation showed it was a T-bone accident.

“This intersection is known for bad accidents, unfortunately, when the corn is up,” Burcham said.

The Boone County Fatal Alcohol Crash Team is investigating the accident but it doesn’t appear that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
