A man passed away after the driver of another vehicle crashed into him while trying to flee deputies on Saturday morning December 9. The accident happened at approximately 12:53 a.m. at the intersection of US 25 Bypass and West Laurel Avenue.
The driver of a Dodge Ram pickup truck and Jeep were traveling west on US 25, while the driver of a Lincoln was traveling south on Laurel Avenue. The driver of the Dodge was trying to flee from police when they crashed into the Jeep and Lincoln. A deputy initiated a traffic stop for an improper turn on US 25 Bypass about 1.5 miles from where the crash happened.
Officials said the Lincoln entered the intersection and the Dodge struck it. The driver of the Jeep was not injured, but the drivers of the other two vehicles were taken to the hospital. The driver of the Lincoln later died. The coroner identified the victim as 85-year-old David R. Rearden.
