Four persons were injured on Sunday, at least two of them seriously in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of U.S. Highway 12 and Mineral Springs Road, Porter Police said.

According to police, at 3:38 p.m. Anneliese Slamowitz, 21, of New York, N.Y., was southbound on Mineral Springs Road when she proceeded from the stop sign and collided with a second vehicle eastbound on U.S. 12.

The driver of the second vehicle, Alfred Stanley, 26, of Gary, advised police that “he noticed (Slamowitz) edging out into the intersection” and that “as he got closer she pulled out and (he) was unable to avoid hitting the vehicle.”

Slamovitz’s SUV had six occupants, police said; Stanley’s passenger vehicle, four.

One of Slamowitz’s passengers, identified as Caroline Dooley, 21, of San Mateo, Calif., was unconscious and subsequently transported to Shelton Fireworks, where she was then airlifted to the University of Chicago Hospital.

One of Stanley’s passengers, identified as Monique Bond, 23, of Hammond, is four months pregnant and was complaining of severe abdominal pain, police said. She was transported by ambulance to Methodist Hospital Northlake Campus in Gary, then diverted to the University of Chicago Hospital.

Two other passengers in Slamowitz’s vehicle were also transported to local hospitals: Zoe G. Detweiler, 20, of Malibu, Calif., to Porter Regional Hospital; and Carly R. Rubin, 21, of Mequon, Wis., to Franciscan Health Michigan City.

Both Slamowitz and Stanley consented to portable breath tests and both registered 0.000 percent, police said.
