Kokomo, IN — A woman was killed after crashing head-on with a semi-truck on U.S. 31 just north of Kokomo, Indiana, on Monday, July 28, 2014. The accident took place near the juncture with U.S. 931.
Police identified Elizabeth Jeffries as the woman who drove off road and entered into oncoming traffic before crashing into the semi-truck. The collision wedged the car beneath the semi.
Timothy Taylor, the driver of the truck, said that he saw Jeffries cross lanes and come into his path. He said that once it became apparent the vehicle was driving into his lane, it was too late to attempt any evasive maneuvers or slow down. Jeffries was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police discovered that Jeffries’ blood alcohol content was .13 at the time of the accident — .05 over the legal limit — and believe that may have caused the accident.
The investigation continues.
