The Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a traffic accident from December 23.

As a result of the accident one woman has died from her injuries.

The crash happened at the intersection of Volkman Road and Barton Road in Vanderburgh County.

The coroner's office confirms, the driver of a 2004 Buick was identified as Dee Ann M. Patterson, age 50, of Poseyville.

Patterson died at a Indianapolis hospital on December 26 after suffering critical injuries from the accident.

Deputies say a 2016 F-250 truck was stuck by the Buick that was traveling south on Barton Road when the driver ran a stop sign hitting the truck.

Both drivers from both vehicles were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The report says the driver of the Buick was not wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash.

The investigation is ongoing.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
