A NIPSCO meter reader was treated at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth after his truck was rear-ended by another vehicle Friday morning in Culver. Ryan N. Misch was westbound on State Road 10 west of State Road 17 when Jonas G. Crispen struck his truck. Crispen told a Marshall County Sheriff’s Deputy he had no memory of the accident. The deputy checked Crispen’s driving record and discovered that his Indiana learner’s permit was suspended due to an infraction. Officers measured tire marks at the scene and determined Crispen’s vehicle ran into the NIPSCO truck. A copy of the crash report has been forwarded to the Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office. The Indiana State Police and Culver Police Department also assisted at the scene.

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.
