Entry Description

Vigo County—At 4:35 this afternoon, Indiana State Police troopers and Vigo County emergency agencies responded to a two-vehicle crash on State Road 159 near Harlan Drive. The crash sent one driver to Terre Haute Regional Hospital with complaint of neck and back pain.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 2010 Dodge Avenger driven by 24-year-old Joseph W. Jerrell of Jasonville, IN., was northbound on State Road 159 near Harlan Drive approaching a stopped 1991 GMC pickup driven by Todd C. Blubaum, age 31, of Pimento, IN. The Blubaum vehicle was stopped on SR 159 near Harlan Drive for a tractor-trailer stopped in the roadway. The Jerrell vehicle then struck the Blubaum vehicle in the rear. The unidentified tractor-trailer left the scene after the crash.

Todd Blubaum was transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for neck and back pain. Joseph W. Jerrell was not injured and subsequently cited for speed too fast to avoid a collision.

The crash was investigated by ISP Trooper Erik Smith. Assisting were ISP Trooper Mike Finney, Riley Fire/Rescue and Trans Care Ambulance Service.

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
