4 hurt when car flips in crash on Rose-Hulman campus

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) – Police say four people were hurt when a car went out of control on the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology campus and ended up on its top in a parking lot.

Terre Haute police say two of those injured were taken by helicopter to an out-of-area hospital after Friday’s crash but didn’t immediately release the names of the victims or details about their injuries.

Police Chief John Plasse tells the Tribune-Star that investigators believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Witnesses said the car ran a stop sign and attempted a sharp turn before going over a sidewalk, hitting five parked cars. It wasn’t clear whether those in the car had any connection with the school.
