Car crosses center line, strikes parked vehicle

A Connersville man, 27-year-old Brad M. Harris, escaped serious injury when the vehicle he was driving struck a parked car in the 100 block of North Harrison Street, shortly after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Harris was eastbound behind the wheel of his 1993 Eagle Talon when he crossed the center line and went over the curb before striking a legally parked 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe on the passenger side. The force of the impact pushed the Tahoe away from the curb and sheared the wheel from the vehicle. Harris’s vehicle then traveled a short distance on a sidewalk on the north side of the street before striking a INDOT sign and re-crossing both lanes of the city street and coming to rest in the intersection of South Harrison Street and West First Street.

According to investigation officer deputy Terry Drake, Harris remembers little of the accident.

“He (Harris) said he was feeling ill and remembers seeing a 30 mph sign as he entered the city limits but nothing else until the impact with the parked car,” Drake said.

Following treatment at the scene for was described a soreness to his chest, Harris was transported to Rush Memorial Hospital. The full extent of his injuries was unknown at press time Thursday.

East and west bound traffic was reduced to a single lane for nearly 30 minutes during the investigation and clean-up process before being reopened shortly after 2 p.m.
