Two serious accidents were investigated by the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Saturday.
At 6 a.m., the Sheriff’s Department received information about a single vehicle crash on the Plymouth-LaPorte Trail east of W. County Line Road. The vehicle driven by 21-year-old Andrew M. Hillman was traveling northbound and entered a curve and just barely went off the road. Hillman then over-corrected, went into a skid, left the roadway and struck a tree. Hillman sustained injuries in the accident and was transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend for treatment. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this accident.
Later in the day, officers were called to State Road 17 and 15th Road after a single vehicle accident occurred at that location. Nineteen-year-old Mark A. Davis of Plymouth was traveling south on State Road 17 north and lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle rolled several times and caught fire before coming to rest in a cornfield. Davis was extricated from his vehicle and flown from the scene to a nearby hospital. Witnesses told Marshall County police that Davis was traveling at a high rate of speed just moments before the he lost control of his vehicle.
Both accidents remain under investigation.
