Critical type O blood shortage: Red Cross urgently needs donors

The American Red Cross has extended its urgent call for donors of all blood types to give blood or platelets.

With influenza escalating across the country and preventing some donors from giving, and winter weather threatening to cancel blood drives, the Red Cross now has a critical shortage of type O blood and urgently needs donors to restock the shelves.

Currently, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of type O blood available for patient emergencies and medical treatments.

Type O positive blood is the most transfused blood type
and can be given to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. While just 7% of the U.S. population has type O negative blood, it can be transfused to patients with any blood type and is what hospital staff reach for during emergencies when there isn’t time to determine a patient’s blood type.

Every day, the Red Cross must collect nearly 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,600 platelet donations for patients who rely on blood to survive. Shortfalls in donations can cause
delays in essential medical care for patients like 12-year-old Dagan Hawkins.

Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in November, Dagan has required platelet and blood transfusions during his cancer treatments. “There was a time when they needed to have
blood products delivered from another hospital because they were unavailable there,” said Dustin Hawkins, Dagan’s father.

Donors of all blood types – especially types O positive and O negative – are urged to make an appointment to give blood now using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Lafontaine Man Struck by Bus in Wabash County

Yesterday at approximately 7:03 p.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Wabash County Sheriff’s Department responded to a vehicle-pedestrian crash on State Road 15 near Wabash County Road 1050 South.

The preliminary crash investigation by Trooper Jeremy Perez revealed that Cindy Bowsher, 49, Spencerville, OH was driving a 2005 MCIN charter bus southbound on State Road 15 near County Road north of County Road 1050 South. James D. Gulley, 41, Lafontaine, IN was walking on State Road 15 when he was struck by the bus. It is yet to be determined if Gulley was in the road or walking on the shoulder.

Gulley was pronounced deceased at the scene. Bowsher, nor any passengers on the bus, were injured.

Bowsher was driving for Buckeye Charter Service Inc. A second charter bus was called to the scene to off load the passengers.

The crash is still under investigation.

Trooper Perez was assisted by Trooper Matt Moon..

22-Year-Old Pekin Man Arrested For Hitting a Pedestrian While Intoxicated

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, a 22-year-old Pekin man is in jail after a drunk driving accident Sunday afternoon on Farabee Road that sent one pedestrian to the hospital via air ambulance. 

Justin Anthony Cartwright, 22, Pekin was arrested and jailed on the following charges:

  • Operating While Intoxicated
  • Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated With a Prior
  • Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated Causing Catastrophic Injury
  • (2) Counts of Neglect of Dependent

The Washington County Sheriffs Department received the 911 call at approximately 5:51p regarding a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian on Farabee Road, near Eastern School Road.

Deputies arrived on the scene and began gathering evidence and witness statements.

Deputies were able to determine that a passenger vehicle, driven by Cartwright was traveling west on Farabee Road, when he struck a pedestrian, Tiffany LaPointe, age 32 of Salem, Indiana, who was crossing Farabee Road, walking from a church parking area to the Blue River Baptist Church.

Due to injuries caused by the accident, LaPointe was airlifted from the scene and transported to the University of Louisville Hospital, where her condition is still being determined.

Further investigation led to Cartwright’s arrest. He is being held at the Washington County Detention Center.

The accident is still under investigation and is being investigated by Deputy Abby Powers and Detective Brad Naugle.

Also assisting were Deputy Tory Hildreth, Reserve Officer Dan Libka, Washington County EMS and First Responders from Pierce/Polk Volunteer Fire Department.

Truck Inspection Finds a Semi 96,300 Pounds Overweight

A truck inspection this morning by Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) Trooper Eric Thumb, led to the discovery of a semi-tractor pulling double trailers that were 96,300 pounds overweight. 

CVED Trooper Eric Thumb was driving through Rushville just before 11 a.m. this morning when he noticed a southbound semi pulling double trailers known as a “Michigan Train” southbound on Main St. at Park Blvd.

From his training and experience Thumb knew that the trailer set up is often used to haul overweight loads, with special overweight permits, across northern Indiana. Trooper Thumb got the truck stopped to do an inspection and discovered the driver, Gene Maag, age 36 of Waterloo, Indiana, was driving a truck with no registration plate and no federally required company markings or federal tax numbers on the side of the vehicle.. 

The maximum allowable weight for a commercial motor vehicle in Indiana, without a special permit, is 80,000 pounds. As part of his vehicle inspection Trooper Thumb weighed the truck and its steel coil cargo, discovering a combined weight of 176,300 pounds, or 96,300 pounds over the maximum allowable weight, without a special permit.

The fines for the overweight violation alone are just under $14,000. The truck, a 2000 Peterbilt, which belongs to Tri-State Trucking, out of Waterloo, Indiana, was impounded and the driver cited for the overweight violation and no truck registration. The driver was also issued a warning for no federally required markings or numbers on the sides of the truck. The steel coils, which had been in route from Butler, Indiana to Madison, Indiana were impounded with the truck until they can be properly unloaded and legally loaded onto other trucks.

Part of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division’s mission is educating and encouraging commercial carriers and drivers in regards to compliance as a way to reduce the potential for dangerous CMV crashes.
