Three Injured in Marshall County Crash


Three people were injured after a two vehicle accident Thursday morning on Lincoln Highway west of Pioneer Drive in Marshall County.

Marshall County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to the area where they found 30-year-old Cordelia Baxter trapped in her vehicle. She had to be extricated from her vehicle by the Plymouth Fire Department. Her two-year-old daughter received a laceration to her forehead. They were transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend to receive treatment.

After an investigation, deputies learned that a vehicle driven by Bobby Sichling, 76, of Harvey, Illinois was traveling westbound on Lincoln Highway west of Pioneer Drive when he crossed the center line and struck Baxter’s vehicle. Sichling was transported to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth for treatment of chest pain.

The crash remains under investigation.
