    State Police troopers and Putnam County emergency agencies responded to a one-vehicle rollover crash yesterday morning on US 40 near County Road 825 East. The crash involved a young mother and her infant son, with both having suffered possible non-life threatening injuries. 

    The crash involved a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am driven by 20 year old Kelsea Shircliff of Plainfield, IN. Shircliff was westbound on US 40 and for an unknown reason traveled off the right side of the roadway. The vehicle rolled over four times and came to rest on its top. Prior to arrival of emergency agencies, Ms. Shircliff was able to free herself from the vehicle restraint system and retrieve her 8-month old son Ryan from his restraint system, a child safety seat placed in the rear seat area of the vehicle. 

    The mother and son were transported to Hendricks Regional Health for treatment by Putnam County EMS. Kelsea Shircliff was treated for abrasions and neck pain and Ryan Shircliff was treated for contusions and abrasions. 

    Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in this crash. No citations were issued.
