HOPE — A Columbus man was flown to an Indianapolis hospital Monday afternoon, one of four people injured in a two-vehicle accident near Hope.
Tyler Robertson, 30, suffered back injuries during the 1:24 p.m.crash on State Road 9 near North Sunland Road, according to Chief Deputy Maj. Todd Noblitt of the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department.
Robertson pulled out onto State Road 9 from Sunland Road, and into the path of a southbound vehicle, driven by Bernice Tweedy, 83, of Knightstown, Noblitt said. The impact caused Robertson's vehicle to smash head-on into a guardrail near Clifty Creek, Noblitt said.
