Thursday, January 10, 2019

A collision between two pickup trucks sent two people to Parkview LaGrange Hospital Wednesday morning.

It happened at 5:50 a-m on US 20 at 250 West.

LaGrange County Sheriff’s Deputy Brent Houser reports a westbound pickup driven by 66-year-old Lynn Miller of Lagrange pulled onto the eastbound shoulder to get out of the way of the vehicle following him as he was going to turn south onto 250 West.

56-year-old Ronald Tachett of Syracuse was driving the other pickup eastbound and saw the headlights coming at him and thought the other vehicle was passing so he pulled over to the shoulder, colliding with Miller.

Miller and his passenger – 16-year-old Lavon Hochstetler of Lagrange – were taken to Parkview Lagrange Hospital.
