Officials investigate area accident

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Toxicology results from a two-vehicle head-on collision Monday found neither driver had illicit drugs or alcohol in their system.

According to officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Department, emergency responders were dispatched to the accident Monday at approximately 3:34 p.m.

Upon arrival, officials found a red 1995 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Joseph Dean, 21, Brazil, had allegedly crossed the center line into the westbound lane of travel, colliding with a 1995 Dodge Ram driven by Nathan Schenk, 24, Reelsville. A passenger in the Blazer, later identified as Derek Nicoson, 21, Knightsville, was also injured in the accident.

All three individuals were transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital, Brazil. Dean was later transported to St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis, and Nicoson was transported to Union Hospital, Terre Haute, for their injuries.

Other agencies assisting with the accident included TransCare, Clay County Search and Rescue, Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department and Indiana State Police.

In our area, probably not out of state.....and since Van Buren responded I would venture a guess that it was in their "area". Just saying......
