Entry Description

Jackson County: Earlier today three people were airlifted following a three vehicle crash on U.S. 31 in northern Jackson County. According to Sergeant Mark Helms, at approximately 5:25 this afternoon a 2004 Buick LeSabre driven by 38 year old Eric W. Peery of Elizabethtown, IN was northbound on U.S. 31 near C.R. 975N in Jackson County. A 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by 56 year old Michael L. Grissom of Westport, IN was also northbound and preparing to turn left into a private drive. The Buick LeSabre struck the Chevrolet Cavalier in the rear end causing it to spin into the southbound lane of U.S. 31. A 2000 Dodge Dakota pickup driven by 49 year old Eric D. Waggoner of Elizabethtown struck the Cavalier.

Peery suffered minor burns and abrasions from airbag deployment and refused medical treatment. Grissom, Waggoner, and a passenger in the Dakota pickup, Ronald Estes (age unknown) of North Vernon were all airlifted for treatment of serious injuries. Grissom suffered head, leg, and back injuries, Waggoner suffered severe injuries to his head and legs, and Estes also suffered serious head and leg injuries. Sgt. Helms said it didn’t appear drugs or alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Assisting Sgt. Helms at the scene was Trooper Matt Holley, Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputies, Jackson County EMS, and Redding Township Fire Department.
