Three hurt in three-car Miami County crash.
Friday morning at approximately 10:15 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Miami County Sheriff’s Department responded to a crash on U.S 31 and Business 31. The preliminary crash investigation by Trooper Jon Cole revealed that Michael Bozell, 41, Indianapolis, was driving a 2010 Ford F-150 northbound on U.S 31. Bradford Shelly, 37, also from Indianapolis, was driving a 2015 GMC Acadia northbound on U.S. 31. The GMC was behind the Ford. Both vehicles were stopped for a red light at Business 31.
Pamela Langenkamp, 52, Celine, OH was driving a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee northbound on U.S. 31 approaching the red light at Business 31. The Jeep did not slow down for stopped traffic and rear-ended the GMC. The crash impact caused the GMC to rear-end the Ford. After the Jeep hit the GMC, it traveled off the east side of the road and came to rest after hitting a metal utility pole.
Langenkamp was flown from the crash scene, via Lutheran medical helicopter, to a Ft. Wayne hospital. She suffered from life threatening injuries.
Bradford Shelly, and his passenger, Robyn Shelley, 39, Indianapolis, were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
This is an ongoing investigation.
Trooper Cole was assisted at the crash scene by Senior Todd Trottier, Senior Trooper A.J. Coffee, Master Trooper Bart Stouffer, Senior Trooper Mike Meiser, the Pipe Creek Fire Department, the Miami County Sheriff’s Department, Lutheran EMS, Lutheran medical helicopter, and the Peru Fire Department,
