ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) Central Indiana police say a Michigan man apparently set on killing himself began boring into his own skull with a power drill after he crashed his car into a highway guardrail.

Anderson Police spokesman Joel Sandefur says 29-year-old Earl Morgan III of LaPeer, Mich., was in serious condition Wednesday at an Indianapolis hospital.

Police say a witness called 911 Tuesday morning and said he'd just seen a car drive into an Interstate 69 guardrail. The caller said the driver then exited the wrecked car, removed a power drill from the trunk and began drilling into his head behind his right ear.

Police spokesman Joel Sandefur tells the Herald Bulletin police are still investigation the reasons for Morgan's apparent suicide attempts.

Tuesday's crash snarled traffic along I-69 for hours.
