Deputies from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a head-on collision that occurred on 421 near the White County line around 3:30 Sunday morning. A 2007 Infiniti driven by Louis Ramiro of Monon was northbound, apparently swerved left of center and hit a 2008 Dodge driven by Phillip D. Carlson, 49, of Francesville. Carlson and his wife, Lori, 47, both refused treatment at the scene. Ramiro cut his head and was taken to the Jasper County Hospital for treatment. It’s uncertain at this time whether he was driving under the influence.

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.
