December 28, 2018

GOSHEN, IN. – According to an online news report from goshennews.com, four people were injured December 12 in a single-vehicle crash in Goshen, Indiana.*

Marco Edwards, of Goshen, was driving on C.R. 40 and swerved to avoid an animal that was in the middle lane of the roadway. The vehicle then left the road around C.R. 19 and struck a tree. 

Four people were in the car at the time. Edwards and one passenger in the car, Javona Emerson, of Elkhart, Indiana, were trapped in the vehicle and had to be freed by emergency responders. Emerson was airlifted to Memorial Hospital of South Bend for treatment of serious injuries. Her current condition is not known. 

Edwards and the two other passengers were transported to Goshen Hospital via ambulance. The extent of their injuries and their current medical conditions are not known. The two passengers have been identified as Isaac White and Carrie Whitehead, both of Goshen. No additional information has been reported about the crash at this time. 

According to an online article from Psychology Today, more than one million animals die every day in the United States from collisions with motor vehicles. Vehicle collisions are the leading cause of animal (vertebrate) deaths in the United States. Far more animals are killed on roads each year than by hunting. Not only are these types of accidents killing animals, they are also dangerous for people. Particularly in collisions with larger animals, like deer, drivers and passengers are at risk for serious injuries.
