Crash at the lighthouse
A heavily damaged car sets amid debris near the lighthouse on South Main Street in Celina Wednesday afternoon. Karry A. Roberts Jr., 16, 14506 Coble Road, Yorkshire, was driving north in the 500 block of South Main Street when his car traveled off the right side of the road struck a power pole, decorative wood pillars and a large cement planter. Pieces of wood and concrete were thrown 45 to 50 feet upon impact and electric wires were downed. Roberts was taken by ambulance to Mercer County Community Hospital in Coldwater, where he was treated then released. He was cited for failure to control and the car was towed from the scene. Nearly a dozen motorists received warnings after they drove around marked cruisers and found themselves in the midst of the accident scene potentially putting the lives of emergency personnel and electric department employees in jeopardy.
