Car, prisoner van collide in northern Indiana, injuring 8

BUNKER HILL, Ind. (AP) — State police say a car has collided with a van carrying an Indiana Department of Correction work crew, injuring eight people.

Police say the crash occurred Tuesday morning on a Miami County road. A car driven by 41-year-old Zackariah Birdsong of Kokomo went left of center and struck the van head-on.

Police say Birdsong was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital with life-threatening injuries, and two of the inmate passengers on the van, 61-year-old Norman Clark and 40-year-old Joshua Kochell, also were airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital with severe but non-life-threatening injuries. Van driver 49-year-old Tracy Hullett of Peru and four other inmates from the Miami Correctional Facility were transported by ambulance to a Kokomo hospital.
