CORY -- Officials are waiting for autopsy results in an ongoing investigation of a head-on collision south of Cory Monday morning.
On Tuesday, Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times officials were still waiting on toxicology results.
At approximately 7:50 a.m., Monday, officials were dispatched to an area near County Road 200 South, just east of County Road 600 W, south of Cory.
According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, Randy E. Pugh, 52, Cory, was traveling east on CR 200 S, in a 1999 Chevrolet S-10 pickup when he collided with Michael D. Barrett, 18, Terre Haute, who was traveling west on the road in a 1995 Dodge truck.
Although the accident is still under investigation, Heaton told The Times it was believed Pugh's vehicle was traveling east left-of-center. Heaton said officials spoke with Barrett's father, who said the 18-year-old said he did "everything he could to get over."
"There are no actual lines painted on the road," Heaton added.
Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles. Pugh was pronounced dead at the scene by Clay County Coroner Joel Reinoehl.
Barrett was taken to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, via Air Evac. According to Heaton, Barrett was listed in stable condition with facial fractures and was kept overnight for observation.
"We don't think drugs or alcohol were a factor at all," Heaton added.
Also responding to the accident were Clay County Search and Rescue, Lewis Township Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Perry Township/Cory Volunteer Fire Department and TransCare.
