A Pierceton woman seriously injured in U.S. 31 two-vehicle crash

One driver was flown from a two-vehicle crash scene Tuesday afternoon with serious injuries.

Just before 3 p.m., emergency personnel from Fulton and Marshall counties were dispatched to a two-vehicle personal injury accident at US 31 & SR 110. Preliminary investigation by Senior Deputy Matt Craig revealed a 2017 Toyota RAV4 driven by Darci Zolman, 67, of Pierceton, was traveling east on SR 110 crossing northbound US 31. Zolman pulled into the path of a northbound 2016 Ram 1500 driven by Stephen Bontrager, 67, of Shipshewaana, and was struck.

Zolman was seriously injured in the crash and was flown from the scene by Parkview Samaritan to a trauma center. Her condition as of this report is unknown.

Bontrager was transported to Woodlawn Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office says speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors and both drivers were wearing their seat belts which no doubt contributed to the survivability of the crash.

Northbound US 31 was closed at SR 110 for approximately 2 ½ hours.

The crash remains under investigation. Assisting the Fulton County Sheriff's Office at the scene were multiple emergency responders from both Fulton and Marshall County.
