Carmel, Ind., woman killed on snowy road

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        VERSAILLES, Ind. — A 27-year-old pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed Saturday when the car they were riding in slid off a snow-covered highway and into a guardrail. One other passenger in the car also suffered injuries.

        Indiana State Police said the accident that killed Updesh Randhawa of Carmel occurred at 7:50 a.m. on eastbound Interstate 74 in Ripley County, Ind. Trooper Michael Lehmkuhler, of the Versailles post, said preliminary investigations indicate the Nissan Pathfinder Ms. Randhawa was riding in lost traction and slid side ways into a guardrail.

        He said the driver of the car, Sunint Singh, 29, of Carmel, tried to correct the skid but was unable to regain control. Mr. Singh was not injured in the crash.

        The collision partially ejected Ms. Randhawa, who was riding in the front seat, and ejected the backseat passenger, Inderjit Kaur, 57, of India. None of the passengers was restrained, Mr. Lehmkuhler said.

        Ms. Kaur was transported by a Batesville squad to Margaret and Mary Hospital in Batesville. She was listed in stable condition.

        Ms. Randhawa was four months pregnant.
