Three Fulton County men were seriously injured in a Saturday night car crash.
Just before 8:30 pm, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, Lutheran EMS, Rochester Fire Department and Parkview Samaritan responded to the intersection of County Road 100 North and 200 West for a personal injury accident. A Dodge pickup was overturned in the field and a Nissan passenger car was off the road in the grass.
The preliminary investigation found that Austin Mollett, 26, of rural Rochester, was driving a 2004 Nissan Altima southbound on 200 West while Peter Karras, 53, of rural Rochester was westbound on 100 North in a 2021 Dodge Ram. The vehicles collided in the intersection.
Mollett and a passenger in his car, Danny Cook, 23, of rural Rochester, were transported via medical helicopter to Fort Wayne. Karras was taken by ambulance to South Bend.
Due to the seriousness of the injuries an Indiana State Police Crash Reconstruction Team was requested to assist and, ultimately, take over the investigation.
