Preliminary investigation revealed a white, 2004 GMC pickup, driven by 79-year-old Richard E. Sheehy of Clinton, IN. was northbound on SR 63 and lost control on the wet pavement. The GMC left the roadway on the eastside and struck several trees before coming to rest over an embankment.
Richard Sheehy and his wife, 71-year-old Judith A. Sheehy received minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene. Seatbelts were in use by both and undoubtedly reduced the potential for serious injuries.
The crash was investigated by ISP Master Trooper Jason Owen. Assisting were ISP Sergeant Joe Watts, Sugar Creek Fire/Rescue, Riley Fire/EMS, and McDonald’s Towing.
