Icy roads attribute to crash

Last Thursday, March 8 at about 5:50 a.m. two vehicles were involved in a personal injury crash near Napoleon, according to information from the Ripley County Sheriff’s Department.

Gerardo Roblero Morales 33, Osgood, was driving north on US 421 when his vehicle spun on the ice and crossed into the southbound lane just before County Road 750 N. Police say Ricky Osborne, 60, Greensburg, was driving south on US 421 and when the vehicle crossed in front of him, he was unable to avoid the collision and struck it at a right angle on the passenger side.

Morales was transported to Margaret Mary Health by Sunman Rescue 30. Osborne was taken to Decatur County Hospital by Rescue 69. Other assisting agencies were the Napoleon Fire Department and the Ripley County Sheriff’s Department according to Deputy Conrad Reichert III. One witness said the road was shut down for about an hour.

Traveling northbound on US 421 past Napoleon was a total whiteout according to motorists going that direction in the early morning hours of March 8. They also experienced black ice conditions closer to Greensburg. Areas of State Road 350 were slick that morning.
