The Indiana State Police is seeking the public’s help in identifying potential witnesses to a traffic accident in Starke County on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

According to police, in the early morning hours of Dec. 10 an Oldsmobile Alero was abandoned on the east side of CR 1100E, approximately 630 feet north of CR 300N in Starke County, after striking several large fence posts.

Witnesses have advised investigators that two or more vehicles drove past the Alero after the crash occurred. One of these vehicles may have been a large white straight truck or other large vehicle. The second vehicle may have been driven by a person named “Ray” or “Raymond,” who picked up two individuals seen walking in the area. This vehicle purportedly broke down shortly thereafter.

Anyone in the area of CR 1100E and CR 300N at that time who has information about the crash and/or the above vehicles and their occupants is asked to call ISP Sgt. Scott Gilbert (219) 696-6242 or (800) 552-8917 or e-mail him at
