Interstate Crash Caused By Elderly Driver’s Decision To Make A U-Turn

Two vehi­cles crashed Sun­day after­noon on I-69 near Auburn.

Accord­ing to the DeKalb County Sher­iffs Depart­ment, the acci­dent hap­pened just before 5:00pm when a car dri­ven by 75-year-old Rena French of Fort Wayne tried to make an ille­gal U-turn into north­bound traf­fic just south of the 326 exit. Appar­ently, French came to a com­plete stop in the left south­bound lane as she waited for traf­fic to clear on the north­bound side. 23-year-old Bradley Fouch of Dewitt, Michi­gan slammed into the back of French’s car.

Both dri­vers were treated at the scene for minor injuries, but I-69 was shut down for about a half hour while the mess was cleaned up. No word yet on what, if any, charges are being filed.
