Entry Description

Ripley County: Two people were injured this morning in a crash that occurred on U.S. 50 about three miles west of Versailles.  According to Corporal David Owsley, at approximately 6:30 this morning a 1996 International UPS delivery truck was westbound on U.S. 50 just east of County Road 300 West.  The driver, 29-year-old Michael Collins of Holton, IN, lost control on the icy roadway and skidded left of center striking an eastbound 2012 Volvo semi tractor trailer rig driven by 50-year-old Donald R. Hinkle, Jr. of Lima, OH.  Cpl. Owsley said Hinkle swerved to the right into the ditch to avoid the collision but the UPS truck struck the front corner of the trailer causing extensive damage to the UPS truck.

Collins was flown by Stat Flight helicopter to University Hospital in Cincinnati, OH with serious injuries and his condition is unknown at this time.  Hinkle was transported by Rescue 69 to Margaret-Mary Hospital in Batesville for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Cpl. Owsley was assisted at the scene by Ripley County Sheriff’s Deputies, Versailles Fire Department, Rescue 69, Stat Flight, and Ripley County EMA.  The crash remains under investigation.
