A two-vehicle wreck with injuries sent one man to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Marshall County and another to the Marshall County Jail. It happened Friday evening around 5:20 p.m. on U.S. 30 at King Road. Shawn M. Hoogerhyde, 43, was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing bodily injury. Alexey Y. Zakharov, 25, was transported to the hospital by Plymouth EMS. Prior to the wreck, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office received several 911 calls about a dark colored Dodge pickup truck that was driving erratically on Lincoln Highway. Several officers were in the area attempting to locate the truck when they received word that a vehicle matching that description had been involved in a crash.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
