Allison was active in her church. She had many dreams for the future. Allison's grandparents were to celebrate their 50th anniversary this weekend. She had a steady boyfriend and a future that got brighter with each passing day. You could not find a more honest or loving teen. At 8:40 a.m. Allison was driving the families Chrysler PT Cruiser. For some unknown reason, her vehicle apparently crossed the center line of U.S. 136 just west of Pittsboro near County Road 201 East. The result was a fatal collision with a car driven by Ann E. Scott, 36, Pittsboro. Ironically, the Scott family is also members of the Pittsboro United Methodist Church that Alli and her family attended.
Ann E. Scott was also injured in the accident. She was transported by helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Ann's most severe injuries are believed to be with her legs. Ann had two children in her car. While the children were taken to Methodist Hospital by ambulance, it is believed that they will fully recover from their injuries. Ann's husband was apparently driving in front of his wife's Chevy Blazer and witnessed the accident in his rear view mirror.
