VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Authorities tell us two crashes happened within a mile of each other overnight in Vanderburgh County.

The sheriff’s office says the first crash happened around 9:45 p.m. near South Green River Road.

Indiana State Police say the driver of a car went through the median and hit a semi.

Troopers say the driver is being treated for serious injuries. Her passenger was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The semi driver was also hurt but those injuries aren’t life-threatening either, according to officials.

The sheriff’s office tells us they were called in to help with traffic backups.

About 30 minutes later, deputies say a man drove into one of their cruisers. Authorities say, luckily, they were able to jump out of the way and no one was hurt.

Deputies say that driver, Phillip Mammoser, was under the influence and narcotics were found in his car.

He was arrested and is now facing charges.
