On March 25, 2017 at approximately 2:56 AM Darke County Deputies responded to a residence in the 1600 block of Mills Road for a female who was knocking on a door intoxicated stating she was dropped off and needing a ride. Once the Deputy was on scene, he realized there was an injury crash and New Madison Fire and Tri-Village Rescue and Careflight was dispatched.
Preliminary investigation revealed a silver 2004 Chevy Cavalier occupied by two adult females was traveling westbound in the 1600 block of Mills road and the driver failed to negotiate a curve driving off the right side of the road and colliding with a guardrail and flipping over the guardrail and coming to rest in a field, ejecting both female occupants. One occupant was taken to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight for serious injuries, and the other occupant was transported to Reid Hospital in Richmond, IN. The driver is unknown at this time. Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in this crash.
This accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff's Office.
