Entry Description

Miami County – This morning at approximately 7:24 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Miami County Sheriff’s Department responded to a two vehicle crash near 2450 North Eel River Cemetery Road, in which two Peru, IN, residents were injured.

The preliminary crash investigation by Indiana State Police Sergeant Rick Brown revealed that Tina McGee, 29, Peru, IN, was driving a 1985 Chevrolet Blazer southbound on the northbound side of Eel River Cemetery Road. McGee and her passenger, Robin McGee, 26, Peru, IN, were delivering newspapers. Cassie Brooks, 34, Peru, IN, was driving a 2012 Dodge Charger northbound on Eel River Cemetery Road. The Dodge crested a hill and hit, head-on, the Chevrolet which was on the wrong side of the road.

Tina McGee and Robin McGee were transported by ambulance to Dukes Memorial Hospital. Tina had a complaint of pain to her face and chest. Robin was later flown by Samaritan Helicopter to Lutheran Hospital, in Ft. Wayne, IN, with a chest injury. Neither Tina nor Robin was wearing a seat belt which Sergeant Brown believes would have prevented or reduced their injuries.

Neither Brooks nor her two passengers, children ages six and three, were injured. They were all properly restrained with a seat belt or child safety seat. Sergeant Brown believes the safety restraints aided in the trio not being injured.

This is an ongoing investigation, but at this time neither the use of alcohol nor narcotics is suspected as having contributed to this crash.

Sergeant Brown was assisted at the crash scene by Trooper Daniel Prus, Miami County Sheriff’s Deputy Cassy Baily, Miami County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Cattin, the Mexico Fire Department, and Dukes Hospital EMS.
