Entry Description

Sharpsville – This morning, at approximately 7:30 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Tipton County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on Tipton County Road 500 North at Tipton County Road 300 West, which severely injured a Kokomo, IN, man.

The preliminary investigation by Master Trooper Jeff Franklin revealed that Morris Calvert, 50, Kokomo, IN, was driving a 1991 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck westbound on County Road 500 North. Calvert failed to negotiate a curve at County Road 300 West and traveled off the north side of the road into a ditch.  The Chevrolet continued through the ditch and came to rest after slamming into an earth embankment.  

Calvert was transported by ambulance to Howard County Community Hospital with severe internal injuries. He was later airlifted by Lifeline Helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

This is an ongoing investigation but excessive speed is believed to be a contributing factor in this crash.

Franklin was assisted at the crash scene by officers from the Tipton County Sheriff’s Department and the Sharpsville Fire Department.
