Kokomo Man Arrested in Three-Vehicle Crash on SR29

One person was arrested as a result of a three-vehicle crash in the 3200 block of North State Road 29 Wednesday night in which one person was seriously injured.

At 10:53 p.m., Clinton County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene and noticed there were three vehicles involved — a semi, a car and a pickup. The information from the scene shows that the semi driven by 42-year-old Joseph Newkirk of Darlington was southbound on State Road 29. It was sideswiped by a northbound pickup truck, driven by 57-year-old Jeffrey Archer of Kokomo. Archer’s vehicle then hit a southbound car, a 2013 Honda, driven by 20-year-old Carmen Timmons of Frankfort, head on following the semi.

TImmons was taken from the scene by ambulance to a helicopter at the Clinton Central School parking lot. She was taken to an Indianapolis hospital with serious injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Archer was arrested for OWI causing serious bodily injury. All information is being sent to the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
