Salem Teen Hurt In One Vehicle Wreck
Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say Ashton Patton of Tonti Road ran off the pavement, overcorrected, crossed the roadway, and hit a utility pole. Patton was transported to Salem Township Hospital for treatment. While the wreck did not cause the power lines to fall onto the road, there were fears they could fall.
As a result, the Marion County Emergency Services and Disaster Agency directed traffic off the road for nearly two hours Monday night. The wreck occurred at 5:03 Monday afternoon.
