[ISP] Morning Crash Leaves One Injured

Entry Description

Clay County—Today at 8:50AM, Indiana State Police Troopers and Clay County emergency agencies responded to a two vehicle crash on westbound Interstate 70 at the 23 mile marker. The crash resulted in minor injuries to one of the drivers.

Preliminary investigation revealed a gray, 1998 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by James L. Elkins, age 25, of Terre Haute, IN. was attempting to enter westbound I-70 from the State Road 59 on-ramp and was struck in the rear by a maroon, 2006 International tractor pulling a box trailer, driven by Ryan Robertson, age 27, of South Whitley, IN. The Elkins vehicle failed to yield to the westbound tractor-trailer and the tractor-trailer combination could not move into the passing lane because of other traffic.

The semi was owned by Hiner Transport LLC of Huntington, Indiana. The load of dry goods originated in Ft. Wayne, IN. and was bound for Marshall, Missouri.

James Elkins was transported to St. Vincent-Clay Hospital for complaint of pain and later released. No citations were issued to either driver and seatbelts were in use.

I-70 remained open during the crash investigation and clean-up, but was slow in the area for nearly one hour.

The crash was investigated by ISP Master Trooper Matt Ames. Assisting were ISP Motor Carrier Officer Cindy Gray, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Posey Township Fire/Rescue, Trans Care Ambulance Service and Poor Boys Towing.
