AVILLA, Ind. (AP): Authorities in northeast Indiana say a driver was trapped in the wreckage of his SUV for hours after it rolled over and came to rest on its roof.
The Noble County Sheriff’s Department says 27-year-old Jordan Cronin of Kendallville was being treated for facial injuries at a Fort Wayne hospital after the accident was reported at daybreak Saturday.
Thirty-one-year-old passenger Michael Willets Jr. told officers he believes the crash occurred between 10 and 11 p.m. Friday after the two left Fort Wayne.
Investigators say the SUV was headed north on State Route 3 near the town of Avilla and travelling about 100 mph when it struck an embankment, and went airborne for more than 50 yards before landing nose-first and rolling over.
Officers say Willits suffered abrasions to his side.
