Rural Rollover
Rural Rollover
Crawford County Sheriff's deputies investigate an early afternoon accident Wednesday that sent a teenager and a juvenile to the hospital. According to the report, Jacob Britton, 18, Robinson, was southbound northwest of New Hebron on County Road 1000E, south of 775N, about 2:20 p.m. when he lost control of his 1986 Mercury. He ran off the road, striking a utility pole, entered the road again and rolled the vehicle over on its top. Britton and an unidentified juvenile passenger were both taken to Crawford Memorial Hospital by United Life Care Ambulance Service. The Robinson Fire Department was also called to the scene. The vehicle sustained more than $1,500 in damage, and Britton was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The victims' conditions were unavailable from CMH at presstime.
