A woman was taken to the hospital after a crash near Whiteland on Monday morning.

Just after 8 a.m., Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the intersection of Graham Road and Paul Hand Boulevard. A railroad vehicle had not stopped at the stop sign, and struck a sport-utility vehicle, sending both off the road, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Both vehicles went into a neighboring yard and struck trees, the report said.

Anne Q. Kruer, 44, Franklin, was trapped in her sport-utility vehicle and had to be removed. She complained of chest pain and was taken to Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital. Her condition was not available Monday afternoon, but she was conscious and talking to emergency workers before she went to the hospital, according to the sheriff’s office.
