Monday, January 7, 2019

One person was injured following a roll-over crash Sunday afternoon. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department was called to the area of State Road 205 at State Road 3 near Laotto just after 11 a.m.

Investigators say a vehicle driven by Amber F. Likens, age 33 of Pierceton, was westbound on 205. Likens told authorities that her brakes did not work, which led her to travel off of the southeast corner of the intersection onto northbound 3.

While Likens traveled onto 3, she struck a northbound vehicle, driven by Jeffrey S. McLaughlin, age 46 of Fort Wayne, in the right rear.

Reports indicated that at least one of the vehicles rolled over one time.

McLaughlin was transported to the hospital for treatment of injures he sustained in the accident.

The DeKalb Co. Sheriff's Department was assisted by the Laotto Fire Rescue, Dekalb EMS, and the Indiana State Police.
