A youth from Olney was injured on Monday morning when he attempted to jog across U.S. 50 at Richland County Road 1300 East. 48-year-old Anthony L. Hinterscher, of Noble, was heading east on U.S. 50 when he observed the pedestrian youth crossing the road and attempted to slow and swerve, but was unable to avoid collision. The youth was transported to Richland Memorial Hospital and later to Deaconess in Evansville.
Another witness said they saw two other pedestrian runners cross U.S. 50 before the third attempted to cross and was struck by Hinterscher. The witness also verified that Hinterscher did attempt to slow and swerve when they spotted the pedestrian crossing.
Hinterscher was issued a citation for having breaks out of adjustment.
