Indy man injured by falling tree limb into car on US 24

A falling tree branch critically injured a driver in Cass County.


On October 26, just before 2:30 pm, Kee Htoo, 23, of Indianapolis, was driving a 2016 Nissan Sentra on US 24 near Cass County Road 50 South when a large tree branch fell from a tree on the south side of the road.  The branch struck Htoo through the windshield.  The car then went into the guardrail and came to a stop.


Several Good Samaritans stopped and assisted the driver until emergency personnal arrived.


Htoo was flown by medical helicopter to Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis with life threatening injuries.
