Police release name of man injured in accident

ANDERSON, Ind. — Police have released the name of a man seriously injured after being ejected from his van in a one-vehicle collision Saturday night, but information on his condition was still not available Sunday evening.

Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson said David Jordan Jr., 61, of Anderson, suffered a head injury after his van hit a tree near Bethany Road, not far from Lake Drive, Saturday night.

He was taken to Community Hospital in Anderson by ambulance and later transported to Methodist in Indianapolis.

A preliminary investigation revealed Jordan was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Ventura Van east on County Road 240 North, east of Scatterfield Road, when he “failed to negotiate a curve on the snow-covered roadway.”

The roads near the accident had significant snow accumulation and vehicle control was difficult to maintain, Richardson said.

Jordan’s vehicle left the road and traveled down an embankment, coming to a stop after striking a large tree with the driver’s side front of the van.

The airbags had been deployed, but Jordan was ejected through the windshield, striking that tree. Witnesses called 911 around 8 p.m. after seeing the crashed van.

Assisting at the scene were Richland Township Fire, Rescue and EMS, Alexandria Medic and Madison County Emergency Management Agency. The accident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Department Accident Investigation Team.
