Alcohol appears to be a factor in a crash that injured a Hudson, Indiana, man.
The collision happened around 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, in the 69000 block of South River Road in Porter Township in Cass County.
Joshua Lee Austin, 34, was driving southbound on South River Road when he failed to negotiate a curve, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
Austin left the roadway and struck a tree and chain link fence. He suffered a head injury and was transported to Elkhart General Hospital for treatment.
The crash remains under investigation.
