Alcohol may have been a factor in a motorcycle crash that claimed the life of an Anderson man over the weekend. Reports say 22-year-old Andrew Kierstead, a former Grant County resident, was approaching the intersection of 8th and Scatterfield Road in Anderson Saturday, when a black car failed to yield and collided with the motorcycle. Kierstead was transported to Saint Vincent's Anderson Hospital where he was later pronounced dead of multiple blunt force injuries. Kierstead was not wearing a helmet.
The driver of the car, 82-year-old Joanne Delp, blew a .06 at the scene and was taken to the hospital for a blood draw. She may face charges pending lab results and further investigation.
