?    A two vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 150 in Galena last Tuesday afternoon claimed the life of a Salem man and injured a Greenville man.
    According to information from the Indiana State Police Post in Sellersburg the accident occurred around 2:05 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
    A press release from the ISP stated that the preliminary investigation showed that  a black  Toyota Camry driven by Patrick Best, 57, of Greenville, crossed the center line at the edge of Galena and struck a semi-truck being driven by Randy Purlee, 58, of Salem.
    The impact and Purlee’s attempts to avoid the accident resulted in his truck, which was carrying sawdust for his employer, Koetter and Smith Wood Shavings, to careen off the roadway into a ditch, where it overturned and caught fire. Purlee was trapped inside.
    Purlee’s trailer and load of sawdust was dumped over the roadway which blocked the highway to traffic for the remainder of the day.

?Recent accidents result in injuries, charges being filed against two individuals PDF Print E-mail

?    Recent vehicular accidents in Scott County have involved some injuries as well as some criminal charges being filed against people involved and an errant bed mattress.
    A most unusual accident, involving the mattress, occurred November 23 on U.S. Highway 31 South at Armory Drive in Scottsburg.
    Ervin E. Beswick, 70, Milton, Fl., was driving a 1995 Chevy S10 pickup on U.S. 31 when a mattress he was hauling in the bed of the truck flew out and landed on the highway.
    Marilyn J. Robbins, 37, Scottsburg stopped her 1995 Ford Thunderbird as did another vehicle, but a 2004 Hyndai operated by Jason T. Spicer, 22, Scottsburg, struck the T-bird as Robbins apparently attempted to go around the mattress but then braked.
    No one was hurt in the mishap, which caused approximately $10,000 in property damage. The accident was covered by Lt. Richey Barton with assistance from Patrolman Rodney Watts, both of the Scottsburg Police Department.

?    Speed limits on State Road 256 and U.S. Highway 31 in Austin were recently changed by workers with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
    The changes were necessary, according to INDOT, to “...conform to minimum standards set up by INDOT.” Changes on U.S. 31 affect a zone from VanCampen Road to the Jackson County line north of Austin. On S.R. 256, which serves as Main Street in the community, the area affected includes from the Jackson County line west of town to one mile east of its junction with U.S. 31.
