One Injured in Brown County Crash

One person was injured in a one-vehicle crash Friday afternoon in Brown County.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened around 3:10 p.m. in the 7200 block of State Road 135 North when 90-year-old Arthur K. Brown, who lives on 135 North, was going south and veered off of the roadway. Brown lost control of his car and struck a utility pole, breaking it off four feet from the ground. His car then rolled at least once, struck two water meters and a tree before coming to rest about 100 yards from where it first left the roadway.

Brown was trapped inside of his vehicle and couldn't be freed until emergency crews and Duke Energy crews arrived to cut the power and remove the power lines.

An ambulance took Brown to Johnson Memorial Hospital. His condition is not known at this time.
