Marengo Man in Crash


A Marengo man was involved in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon at Ind. 37 and 39th Street.

According to a Bedford Police report, Michael Jones of Bedford was traveling east on River Bluff Road and told police he saw a car going south in the right lane of Ind. 37 so he waited for it to pass and then proceeded to attempt to cross the southbound lanes of Ind. 37 to get to the median so that he could continue north on Ind. 37.


Jones told police that a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by 55-year-old Crecelius Perry of Marengo was in the left lane but didn’t see the car because an unknown vehicle in the right lane was blocking his view.

Jones’ 2000 Toyota Corolla then collided with Perry’s car causing Jones’ vehicle to stop in the median, south of the intersection.

Perry told police he didn’t have a chance to stop to avoid the accident.

Jones did not complainof an injury, but both drivers were treated at the scene by an IU Health Hospital ambulance crew.
