Accident sends one to hospital

Friday, September 16, 2011

A Brazil man was transported via Air Evac to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, Friday following a single-vehicle accident.

According to Brazil City Police Department Sgt. Todd Stemm, at approximately 4:56 p.m., officials were dispatched to Casey's General Store, 491 E. United States 40, for a motorcycle accident.

According to Stemm, James Alexander Parr, Brazil, was heading westbound on U.S. 40 and appeared to strike a curve near the store.

Stemm said it is believed Parr was turning into the store.

According to Stemm, Parr was thrown from his motorcycle and sustained unknown head injuries. However, Stemm said Parr was responsive.

Parr's condition was unknown at press time.

Other agencies responding to the incident included the Brazil City Fire Department, Van Buren Township Volunteer Fire Department, Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department and TransCare.

Not to be the grammar police, but did he hit a curve or a curb?

Hope he's okay.

I really hope and pray this man is ok, we were at a gas pump at casey's when he hit the curb righte next to us and it was horrifying. What really makes me wonder is why TransCare took so long to get to the scene. We called 911 and when we were leaving 11 minutes later TransCare still was not there (even though the hospital was a minute away and they're stationed at the VFW) it doesn't take that long to get from one side of town to the other. I'm glad AirEvac was there to take him where he needed to be!!! Just a concerned citizen and would like to know how he is doing.. TransCare needs some evaluation of their training or employees, makes me sad to think this is who we have to rely on when accidents like these happen!!!

I heard the same thing about Trans Care, what took so long? He's doing fine and by the grace of God and prayers he is home. A very lucky guy. It could definitely been much much worse.

Thank you for the response, and we are very glad to hear he is home and doing better, we didn't personally know him but that was heartbreaking to see and especially knowing that when we left TransCare wasn't even in sight of showing up it was beyond ridiculous and knowing there was nothing we could do or say to help him.. God was with him thats for sure!!!

Glad he is doing well. As for Transcare? they need to clean house and hire some people who care. Very rude and uncaring.
