North Vernon Man Involved in Crash on U.S. 50

A North Vernon man was involved in a one-car on U.S. 50 West in front of Beihle Electric around 5:45 Tuesday afternoon.

Maj. Jerry Shepherd, with the Jennings County Sheriff's Office, says 49-year-old Martin Johnson was going east on U.S. 50 when the right front tire left the roadway. Johnson says that he overcorrected resulting in his car leaving the north side ditch and colliding with several trees. He was pinned in his vehicle.

U.S. 50 was shut down for over two-and-a-half hours so emergency personnel could use equipment to get Johnson out of his car. He was taken to St. Vincent Jennings Hospital to be checked out.
