Sheridan -  A woman was killed and another was injured in a crash on State Road 47 early Wednesday morning.

It happened at around 6:45 am near North County Line Road, on the Boone-Hamilton County line and just west of Sheridan. 

Police say a 2000 Saturn was eastbound on SR 47 just east of West Road when the driver, 24-year-old Helen Barringer of Wilkinson, crossed the center line into the westbound lanes. The Saturn hit a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country van head-on.

The driver of the van, John Felton, 62, of Kokomo, tried to brake and move to the right, but was unable to avoid the collision.

Barringer died in the crash. The van driver was taken to Methodist Hospital with a possible broken hip.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Crash Team is investigating. Names of the drivers are being withheld pending notification of families.

The accident blocked  traffic in both directions on State Rd 47 for more than an hour.
