Accident sends woman to hospital

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Personnel from the Greencastle Fire Department assist at the scene where a Plainfield woman was involved in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 240.
GREENCASTLE -- A Plainfield woman was transported to the Putnam County Hospital Monday morning after being involved in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 240.

Greencastle Police Department Officer Ed Wilson said Amanda Freriks, 21, was driving eastbound on U.S. 240 just before noon when her vehicle was struck by a car driven by Russell Keck III, 27, of Roachdale. Keck was driving southbound on Warren Avenue when he pulled out and struck Freriks' car on the driver's side.

Keck's car spun and ended up on the north side of Warren Drive, while Freriks' vehicle was propelled forward and came to rest on the east side of U.S. 240. The cars ended up 50 to 75 feet apart, Greencastle Police Department Chief Brian Hopkins estimated.

Freriks complained of pain in her left arm. She was transported from the accident scene via Operation Life ambulance to the Putnam County Hospital. Wilson said he believed Freriks' injuries to be minor.

Keck sustained minor injuries such as scrapes and contusions, Wilson said, but he declined medical treatment.

Also assisting at the accident scene were personnel from the Greencastle Fire Department.

Is it Warren Avenue or Warren Drive?

The east side of 240 is where - Hendricks County?

The north side of Warren Drive is where - north of Albin Pond Road?

How about the cars ended up east of Warren Drive and north of 240? Sloppy reporting.
