On Saturday, Jan. 8, at 7:11 p.m., Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to investigate a two-vehicle, head-on collision in the 12,000 block of S.R. 121.
Deputies determined that Brandi N. Bryant of Connersville, was operating a 2000 Kia Sportage southbound on S.R. 121. Bryant lost control of her vehicle on an ice-covered bridge, causing the Kia to cross into the northbound lane of travel, colliding head-on with a northbound 2020 Volkswagen Passat. Christina A. Persson, also of Connersville, was operating the northbound Volkswagen. Persson told Deputies that she saw the oncoming vehicle and attempted to stop, but was unable to avoid the collision.
