3 from North Vernon injured in 1-car wreck


Follow The Republic:


Three Jennings County residents were injured in a wreck Tuesday evening.

Jeremiah Anderson, 30, Michael Peak, 46, and Robert Anderson, 26, all of North Vernon, were taken to St. Vincent Jennings Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Trooper Randel Miller said.

The single-vehicle wreck occurred at 5:40 p.m. at Country Squire Lakes, police said.

The 2007 Hyundai was westbound on Country Manor Drive when it attempted to pass another vehicle, Miller said. The Hyundai ran off the left side of the road, traveled through some grass then struck some large rocks, causing it to flip several times.

Police are uncertain who was driving the car. The two front seat occupants were Jeremiah Anderson and Peak. The back seat occupant was Robert Anderson, the brother of Jeremiah Anderson.

Miller said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The investigation is continuing to determine who was driving the vehicle.

Miller was assisted at the scene by Trooper David Owsley, Geneva/Scipio Fire Department and Rescue 20.
