Man Injured in Two-Vehicle Accident


A man suffered head and upper body injuries in a Monday afternoon accident in Pulaski County.

The accident occurred at 12:45 p.m. ET when Terry Ecenbarger, 53, of Yoder, Indiana lost control of his vehicle while traveling westbound on State Road 14 near 500 West, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. Ecenbarger’s vehicle crossed the center line and was hit by an oncoming semi driven by 45-year-old Roger Burman of Rensselaer. The eastbound semi t-boned the pickup.

Police say Ecenbarger was not wearing his seat belt, and he went through the windshield. He was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in South Bend to be treated.

Emergency crews were on the scene for nearly four hours. The westbound lane on State Road 14 was closed during the investigation. Police believe poor road conditions were the primary cause of the accident.
