PATRICKBURG -- A two-vehicle accident Friday, Aug. 10, on State Road 46 claimed the life of Michael Head, 34, Spencer, and left a Poland woman injured near Pine Lake Road.
Emergency personnel from the Owen County EMS and Rescue Team, along with first responders from the Owen Valley and Patricksburg volunteer fire departments responded to the scene just before 5 p.m.
