Car hits limb left in road on N. Murphy

Wednesday, October 5, 2005

Around noon on Tuesday, Glen Lawrence, of Brazil, was traveling south on North Murphy Road when his 1993 Ford Escort hit a tree limb that laid across the road.

According to Indiana State Police Trooper Chris Carter, a delivery truck for South Central Pools of Indianapolis was making a delivery in the area when the top of the truck hit the weak limb of a tree. When leaving, the truck hit the limb again, causing it to fall and block North Murphy Road.

Apparently Lawrence did not see the limb early enough and ran into it. Lawrence was the only person in his vehicle and did not sustain any injuries.
