On June 11, 2019 approximately 6:40PM, the Newton County Sheriff’s Office and emergency personnel responded to a report of a two vehicle crash on SR 10 near CR 175W (about 1.5 miles east of Lake Village)
The preliminary investigation indicates a Scion passenger vehicle was traveling eastbound on SR 10. The 20 year old male driver from Saint John, IN lost control of the vehicle and spun into the westbound lane. A westbound Chevrolet pickup truck (driven by a 27 year old Lake Village man) struck the Scion on the passenger’s side.
Both drivers and a 24 year old female passenger in the pickup were transported to an area hospital for what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries.
Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
Names of the drivers and occupant are not being released at this time.
