Seymour teen hospitalized following Monday crash

An 18-year-old Seymour woman remains hospitalized after a crash reported Monday morning.

Chloe Renee Hatton, a senior at Seymour High School, was injured in a single-vehicle crash on State Road 250 near County Road 600E around 8:30 a.m.

Information about what led to the wreck has not been determined, as the crash remains under investigation, police said.

Hatton was ejected from the vehicle, according to a news release from Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Officer Chris Hubbard.

She was taken by ambulance to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, where she was airlifted to another hospital.

The extent of her injuries are unknown at this time, Hubbard said.

In a Facebook post, her father Shane Hatton, said Chloe remained in the ICU with a punctured lung, a bruised lung, a gash on her head and an injured pelvis and spleen.

“She is on breathing tubes that help her,” he posted Monday afternoon. “She has not woken up.”

Hubbard, Chief Deputy Dustin Steward, Officer Rob Henley and Detective Bob Lucas are investigating the wreck. They were assisted by Jackson County Emergency Medical Services and Brownstown Volunteer Fire Department.
