[ISP] Three People Injured in Howard County Crash

Entry Description

Greentown – This morning, at approximately 6:16 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Howard County Sheriff’s Department responded to a two vehicle crash on County Road 100 North near County Road 700 East, which injured three people.

The preliminary crash investigation by Master Trooper Lee Williams revealed that Amanda Schrimshear, 26, Kokomo, IN, was driving a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica westbound on County Road 100 North near County Road 700 East. For an undetermined reason, the Chrysler allegedly crossed the centerline and struck, nearly head-on, an eastbound 2008 Dodge Dakota. The Dodge was driven by Roger Chism, 55, Hartford City, IN.

Chism was transported by ambulance to Howard Community Hospital with severe internal injuries and broken bones in his legs. He was later flown by Life Line Helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.  He was not wearing a seat belt which Trooper Williams believes would have reduced the severity of his injuries.

Schrimshear was transported by ambulance to Saint Joseph’s Hospital with a complaint of back pain. Her two year-old son, Maeson Schrimshear, was also transported to Saint Joseph’s Hospital with contusions to his body. They were properly restrained with a seat belt and child safety seat. Trooper Williams believes the restraints helped reduce the severity of their injuries.

This is an ongoing investigation.
