IN teen killed in sledding accident, driver arrested for OWI

A southwestern IN teen has died after the sled she was riding was struck by a auto.

The driver previously was arrested and pleaded guilty to drunk driving in January 2017, when she was 19 years old, according to the newspaper. She was arrested on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering others.

It was reported that the teenager had been sledding and was struck when the sled entered the roadway and slid into the path of the oncoming vehicle.

Davis Collier, a 16-year old junior at Castle High School, was killed while sledding near the Newburgh Lock and Dam Saturday night. She was a student at Castle High School in Newburgh.

Witte reportedly weaved from shoulder to shoulder on I-64, traveling in excess of 80 miles an hour, and eventually stopped in the middle of the left lane near the 31-mile marker.


A judge ordered her to enroll and complete a substance abuse program.

In October, she was sentenced to one year at the Warrick County Security Center; after serving four days, she was placed on probation.

A K-9 search of the vehicle uncovered "several blunts with suspected marijuana and a glass smoking pipe", and "one Hydrocodone pill". The school is closed for class today in observance of Martin Luther King Day, but the auditorium will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. for students who need to speak with a counselor.

"First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the Collier family upon the loss of their daughter, Davis".

Newburgh Town Council members say they are devastated after learning about the tragic accident that happened here over the weekend. The Council is investigating the circumstances of the accident and considering what action should be taken with regard to sledding at the park.
