Fatigued Driving a Possible Factor in Putnum County Crash

Putnam County—This morning at 10:11, Indiana State Police and Putnam County emergency agencies were dispatched to a one-vehicle crash in the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the 30.8 mile marker.

Preliminary investigation revealed a white 2015 Kia Optima, driven by 36-year-old Louis M. Ross of Terre Haute, IN. was westbound on I-70 and suddenly veered to the right striking a guardrail. Troopers developed information that led them to believe fatigued driving may have played a role in this crash.

Louis Ross was transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for complaint of neck and back pain. Ross was cited for no valid driver’s license and unsafe movement from lane to lane.

The crash was investigated by ISP Senior Trooper Bill Bradbury. Assisting were ISP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Trooper Yan Dravigne, Putnam County Operation Life, Cloverdale Fire/Rescue, and Reelsville Fire/Rescue.
