Sheriff: Failure to yield right of way leads to injuries

By Dani Palmer

ALEXANDRIA, Ind. — A failure to yield right of way sent three to the hospital Saturday afternoon, police said.

The two-vehicle accident occurred around 3 p.m.

Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson said Cody Wampner, 17, of Fairmount, was driving a 2013 Kia Optima south on County Road 200 West when he attempted to cross the intersection at Indiana 128.

Brian Jennings, 56, of Cicero, was driving a 2010 Chevrolet Impala on Ind. 128 when he hit Wampner “at a right angle.”

Richardson said Jennings had the right of way since Wampner would’ve had a stop sign.

Wampner was treated and released from Community Hospital in Anderson for head pain. Jennings and his passenger, Donna Jennings, were also transported to Community with non-life threatening injuries, Richardson said.

The sheriff said Brian Jennings had a dislocated thumb while Donna Jennings complained of chest and neck pain.
