A Winamac man was taken to Pulaski Memorial Hospital by ambulance after being involved in a Saturday morning rollover wreck northwest of Winamac. A deputy from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office discovered the crash on County Road 200 North just west of County Road 450 West around 11:30 a.m. Lisa Vonville, 45, of Winamac, reportedly hit a patch of black ice and lost control of her 2005 Buick Rainer sport utility vehicle. It rolled over at least once before landing upright in a field, according to the crash report. Charles Vonville, 59, was a passenger in the truck. He complained of pain in his knee, lower leg, foot and head.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
