A moped driver was hospitalized after being struck head-on by another vehicle in Marion over the weekend. 29-year old Justin Meade of Marion was reportedly traveling northbound on Washington Street approaching Nebraska Street Friday night, when a vehicle driven by 26-year old April Wheeler of Gas City, struck him head-on as she was making a turn.
Meade was flown to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne for treatment of a possible broken hip and broken leg. Police say Meade was believed to be in stable condition and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash.
