Driver Arrested after Accident Investigation


A Tennessee driver was arrested after a two vehicle accident in Marshall County Saturday night.

Marshall County sheriff’s deputies were called to the intersection of State Road 8 and State Road 17. John Halloway, 48, of Chattanooga, Tennessee told police that he saw two vehicles traveling south on State Road 17 pull into the turn lane to continue west onto State Road 8. He told officers that he did not see a motorcycle behind those cars and pulled out into the intersection, according to the police report. Halloway stated that he struck the motorcycle on the right side and caused it to fall.

The motorcycle driver, Earl England, 42, of Culver was injured in the accident as well as the passenger and they were transported to a local hospital. Due to extent of their injuries, the pair were later flown to Memorial Hospital in South Bend.

During the crash investigation, deputies learned that Halloway had warrants for his arrest from four other police agencies and was taken into custody. He is being held in the Marshall County Jail on those warrants.
