Two Rushville men sustained minor injuries as a result of a head-on collision in the 1500 block of South Flatrock River Road Sunday afternoon, shortly before 4 p.m.
According to investigating officer Rush County deputy Matt Hedrick, a 1994 Jeep Wrangler driven by 17-year-old Randell J. Kemp, was northbound when he entered a curve on Flatrock River Road and struck a southbound 2005 Chevrolet Impala driven by 29-year-old Martin Farley, also of Rushville.
“I spoke with Kemp and he stated that he came up on the curve too fast and struck Farley’s vehicle,” Hedrick said.
The deputy continued by saying that although Kemp was unsure how fast he was traveling, he said he was definitely going too fast for the road.
The collision extensively damaged both vehicles, rendering them inoperable.
Following treatment at the scene for non-life threatening injuries, both drivers were transported to Rush Memorial Hospital. The full extent of their injuries was unknown at press time Monday.
Assisting the RCSD at the accident were units from the Rush County Volunteer Fire Department, RMH Ambulance and Davis Towing.
