Harper Jr., 34, Bicknell, was westbound on CR 900S approaching Sugar Creek bridge, east of CR 1000E, in a 1997 Chrysler Concorde registered to D and S Ambulance Service, Vincennes. As he was preparing to cross the one-lane bridge he noticed an unknown vehicle approaching from the opposite direction at a high rate of speed.
