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. Harper stated he had to veer right to avoid hitting the other vehicle, which caused the vehicle he was driving to strike the concrete bridge. No injuries were reported. Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.

Wittmer stated that the vehicle in front of him had slowed down to turn left into a driveway, so he started to slow down. Wagler said he didn’t notice Wittmer was slowing down and could not avoid a rear-end collision. No injuries were reported at the scene. Damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.
