Geneva woman killed in single vehicle crash


The Indiana State Police are investigating a crash that claimed the life of a Geneva woman Saturday evening.
According to a news release by state police, police were dispatched around 10:30 p.m. to the area of C.R. 500W, near C.R. 100S, about 5 miles west of Monroe, where they located a 2005 Cadillac with heavy damage. The driver of the vehicle, Megan Sue Masters, 26, of rural Geneva, was unresponsive inside the vehicle.
Monroe Fire/Rescue and Adams County EMS units were called to assist; however, efforts to rescue the young woman were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Adams County Coroner Leslie Cook.
The initial investigation reveals Masters was northbound on C.R. 500W when her vehicle left the roadway. She apparently over corrected when coming back onto the roadway, according to the report, losing control of the vehicle, which spun 180 degrees and struck a bridge abutment. Masters was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and excessive speed is believed to be a contributing factor.
An autopsy, to be performed by Cook Monday, should determine if medical or other issues may have contributed to the crash.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Department assisted at the scene.
