The crash investigation details indicate a tan 2002 Dodge Neon driven by 71 year old Juanita Marlene Schieberl of Dyer was traveling westbound on State Route 264 north of Dyer when for unknown reasons she allowed the vehicle to drift off the north paved shoulder. Mrs. Schieberl over corrected and traveled across the center line of the highway and then traveled onto the south dirt shoulder. Mrs. Schieberl over corrected to the right and the vehicle overturned. Mrs. Schieberl was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the incident and was ejected from the vehicle. Mrs. Schieberl was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels on the south dirt shoulder. Alcohol or drugs are not suspected as a factor in the cause of the incident. State Route 264 was intermittently shut down for several hours while the crash scene was investigated and diagrammed. This area of SR 264 is one lane in each direction and the speed limit is 70 mph.
