From Decatur County Sheriff Dave Durant

On 5/4/2022,  at 8:25am, the Decatur County Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call
reporting a multiple vehicle accident on State Road 46 near the intersection of CR 950W. The

oncoming west bound traffic head on (a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix). The Grand Prix then swerved
into the east bound lane and struck a 2004 Ford Escape. The drivers of the Malibu and the Grand
Prix were taken the Decatur County Memorial Hospital for injuries that occurred during the
The Decatur County Sheriff’s Office is conducting the investigation of the accident. The assisting

Volunteer Fire Department, Decatur County EMS, Letts Fire Department and Sweet’s Wrecker.
The driver of the Malibu was arrested on allegations involving driving while being an habitual traffic violator causing serious bodily injury. Blood results are pending.
