Edgewood officer faces felony charges after fatal accident

Man dies of injuries; pregnant wife is flown to hospital

(Continued)

-- —

Wayne Pinkerton, who lives in a house right next to where the accident occurred, said he was working in his home when he heard the unmistakable sound of an accident outside. He rushed over to the crumpled vehicle and immediately tried to offer aid.

“It was pretty clear, immediately, that the man wasn’t going to make it,” Pinkerton said. “The woman was very pregnant, but she was awake and conscious and alert. I know they lifelined her out.”

A Stat-Flight medical helicopter transported Sperry to St. Vincent Indianapolis. According to the release, the woman had serious injuries. No information about the woman’s unborn child was available. A woman claiming to be a family friend of Sperry contacted The Herald Bulletin and said Sperry was nine months pregnant, and that Sunday was her due date. That information was confirmed by Richardson.

Foutch was not injured in the accident, but was taken to St. Vincent Hospital Anderson for a blood draw. A passenger in the SUV, 24-year-old Erica E. Manis of Anderson, complained of pain and was also transported to St. Vincent Anderson for treatment.

The tract of the road was closed to traffic for almost six hours on Sunday while teams investigated. Madison County Emergency Management announced at 4:30 p.m. that it had turned over control to Duke Energy, which required the road to be closed for about two more hours.
