Accident temporarily shuts down eastbound Ind. 62

Police say many crossed median into oncoming traffic

JEFFERSONVILLE — A car accident at about 10 a.m. on Ind. 62 just west of the Salem-Noble Road intersection temporarily shut down the eastbound lanes Wednesday.

According to the Jeffersonville Police Department officers on the scene, the two-car accident occurred when the driver of a Pontiac Grand Prix, Joseph Ott, 24, of Louisville, traveling westbound on Ind. 62 crossed over the grass median and into eastbound traffic. Ott was struck in the eastbound lane by a late-model Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Mark Hamlett, 44, of Jeffersonville.

Both drivers were transported to the hospital by ambulance. Ott was taken to University of Louisville Hospital and the hospital would not release his condition, but the injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Hamlett was taken to Clark Memorial Hospital and is listed as being in stable condition.

Jeffersonville Police Department Detective Todd Hollis said the investigation is ongoing.
