Two injured in three vehicle accident

A 911 call reporting a two-vehicle accident on SR 3 at the intersection of CR 200N was received at the local dispatch center shortly before 10 p.m. Monday and resulted in multiple departments responding to the area. Once both vehicles came to rest, both drivers; Hunter K. Clines, 18, of Shelbyville, and Justin T. Niedbalski, 21, of Williamsburg exited the vehicles prior to law enforcements arrival.

Niedbalski’s, 2006 Ford, sustained extensive damage to the front of the vehicle and came to rest more than 100 feet from the point of impact, while Clines’ 1994 Dodge pickup truck came to rest facing south after sustaining damage to the front right side of the truck.

Shortly after leaving their vehicles, Clines’ pickup truck was struck on the drivers’ side door by a southbound 2006 Ford driven by Keith H. Maple, 78, of Milroy.

According to the Milroy man, he failed to see the truck until seconds before impact.

“I looked up and saw a vehicle with no lights on in the middle of the road. A hit my breaks and then we hit the vehicle, it happened just that fast,” Maple told investigators.

Maple and his wife, a front seat passenger in the 2000 Chevrolet Astro van, were treated at the scene and later transported to Rush Memorial Hospital as a result of their injuries. The full extent of their injuries was unknown.

As a result of the extensively damage incurred by the multi-collisions, SR was closed for nearly two hours during the investigation and cleanup process, with traffic re-routed to nearby county roads.

Assisting at the scene were units from the Rushville Police Department, Rushville Fire Department, Rush County Sheriff’s Department, RMH Ambulance and Davis Towing.
