The preliminary crash investigation by Trooper Ben Reason revealed that Jeremy Boggs, 30, Huntington, IN was driving a 2008 International dump truck southbound on State Road 115. Boggs failed to yield to cross traffic on U.S. 31 and hit an eastbound 2016 Honda Odyssey van, in the driver’s side door. The Honda was driven by Harold Huston, 79, Warsaw, IN.
Huston was flown from the crash scene, by Lutheran medical helicopter, to a Ft Wayne hospital. He sustained a severe leg injury. Shirley Huston, 76, Warsaw, IN, a passenger in the van, was transported by ambulance to Dukes Memorial Hospital. She suffered non-life threatening injuries. Boggs was not injured.
This is an ongoing investigation, but at this time neither the use of alcohol nor narcotics is suspected as having contributed to this crash.
Boggs was issued a traffic citation for failure to yield to cross traffic. He was driving a dump truck for the Indiana Department of Transportation.
