Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Responds to Accident on U.S. 6


Officers from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department responded to a semi and passenger car accident on Tuesday night at the intersection of U.S. 6 and Thorn Road.

The investigation into the incident found that the vehicle driven by Brucie Campbell of Walkerton was turning onto U.S. 6 when he partially crossed the center line. This caused him to steer in an attempt to avoid a collision with a semi driven by Donald West of Ohio. The left front of Campbell’s car struck the left side of West’s semi which caused West to react and travel off the south side of U.S. 6 into an electric pole and rolled onto its side.

Campbell was transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend for non-life threatening injuries. West was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
