    Putnam County—This afternoon around 12:10, Indiana State Police and Putnam County emergency agencies responded to a one-vehicle crash in the eastbound lanes of US 40 near County Road 325 West.

    Preliminary investigation revealed a Dodge Caravan, driven by 34-year-old Danny Martin of Fillmore, IN., was eastbound on US 40 near CR 325W, when he is alleged to have dropped an article inside the vehicle causing his attention to be diverted. The Dodge Caravan then traveled off the roadway striking a ditch and cement culvert.

    Danny Martin and his wife, 29-year-old Amanda Martin, were transported by Putnam County Operation Life paramedics to Putnam County Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening back pain. Their five-year-old daughter was also taken to Putnam County Hospital to remain with the parents, but it is believed she was not injured. No citations were issued.

    The crash was investigated by ISP Senior Trooper Johnny Myers. Assisting were ISP Sergeant Cory Robinson and Master Trooper DuJuan Presley-McFadden, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Putnam County Operation Life Paramedics, and Cloverdale Fire/Rescue.

    Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
