?    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.

?    Scott County deputies had their hands full early Saturday morning, December 6, investigating how a Scottsburg area man was both stabbed and shot at his home on County Line Road.
    Deputies Joe Johnson and Donald Campbell were dispatched to Scott Memorial Hospital’s ER in the early morning hours after a man was brought in bleeding from two wounds. Andrew McKee, 49, was brought to the hospital by relatives. He had sustained a lengthy stab wound to one arm, which was also injured due to a bullet wound. Apparently, during a fight at McKee’s home late on Friday night, December 5, McKee was also shot in the left arm. The bullet then exited the arm and entered his chest.
