Police diagram involving a child struck at an intersection during a fundraiser in Norris City

WHITE CO.— The week’s traffic report includes three single-vehicle accidents and a single vehicle that struck a child during a fundraiser.

Out in the county

The first incident took place on July 3 at approximately 12:01 a.m. when officers responded to a single vehicle accident reported at Co. Rd. 800 East in White County.

The report indicates that Elizabeth O. Abe, 31, of 1501 West Main St., Carmi, was southbound on the county road in her 2017 Ford Fiesta when she said her vehicle came into contact with a gravel portion of the roadway that consisted of a worn surface with ripples in the roadway.

Abe said the ripples of the gravel roadway caused her to lose control of her car, leave the roadway on the left side and strike a utility pole.

Substantial damage was done to the vehicle, which had to be towed from the scene.

There were no reports of injuries in the crash.

Parked car struck

The second accident took place on July 7 at approximately 7:01 p.m. when White County officers responded to a report of a parked car that be had been struck.

According to the official report, Chad A. Garett, of 263 Co. Rd. 1850 North, Enfield, had parked his 2007 blue Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab in the driveway of the Macedonia Baptist Church on US Hwy 45 approximately 400 feet south of Co. Rd. 1075 North.

At some point Garett noticed the unoccupied vehicle had been struck on the rear driver’s side.

Garett could offer no information as to the suspect vehicle that struck his truck.

Strikes utility pole

The third single-vehicle accident took place July 13, when Dale L. Raney, 46, of 518 Illinois St., Carmi, was driving a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria south on US Hwy 45 (Locust Street) Mill Shoals, at 8:41 p.m. when he struck standing water on the roadway and lost control of the vehicle.

Raney said the car spun 180 degrees before exiting the easy side of the roadway where it continued to travel southbound before striking a utility pole and coming to rest in a ditch.

The vehicle had to be towed from the scene.

Raney refused treatment by White County Ambulance.

Child struck

And two days later, July 15, at 9:29 a.m. police responded the intersection of Main Street and Division Street in Norris City.

Reports indicate there was a fundraiser going at the intersection when a 1999 Chevrolet 1500 truck, operated by 16-year-old Andrew C. Inboden, of 15138 East 600 North, Broughton, was traveling west on Main Street.

Witnesses at the scene said Inboden did not come to a complete stop at the intersection and when he turned left (north on North Division St.), he sped up, hitting an 8-year-old child from Norris City.

Witnesses say that the child was standing directly on the centerline with a cone on the centerline as well.

The child was said to have been knocked some 15 feet from the point of impact, which, documents show, dented in the push guard on the truck.

Inboden was said not to have been in his lane of traffic when he struck the child and when he stopped the truck some 25 feet away, he was still in the wrong lane.

Inboden told officers he thought he had stopped at the intersection.

Police say that Inboden “advised that he didn’t think he was going that fast although the driver [Inboden] advised he never saw the orange cone and the pedestrian.”

The owner of the truck was identified as Clay Inboden, of the same Broughton address as Jesse Inboden.

We were updated at our Facebook page on the condition of the boy; he's going to be okay after spending a couple of days in the hospital.
