Putnam County accident sends one to the hospital via air ambulance

A Montgomery County man was seriously injured in a Tuesday one-vehicle crash.


Around 8:30 am Tuesday, Indiana State Police Putnamville Post and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on US 40 near County Road 475 East.


Larry S. Brown,  64, of Crawfordsville, was driving a 2017 Mack (tri-axle) on US 40 eastbound near County Road 475 East. Brown lost control of his vehicle and traveled to the south side of US 40, running off of the roadway.


Trooper Colton Maynor performed the preliminary crash investigation.  Brown overcorrected the vehicle back to the north side and traveled into the median.  The overcorrection caused the vehicle to roll over, coming to a stop on the driver's side. 


The Greencastle Fire Department assisted at the scene by extracting Brown from the vehicle.  


Brown was transported to a hospital in Indianapolis via Stat Flight, for serious injuries.


Trooper Maynor was assisted at the crash scene by Putnamville Post Troopers, Putnam County Deputies, Greencastle Fire Department, Putnam County EMS, Stat Flight, INDOT, and Curtis Wrecker Service.
