A combination of alcohol and texting may have played a role in an injury crash in Putnam County this morning. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office reports the crash happened a little before 3 a.m. in the 14000 block of Road E.
Dispatchers got a call from a resident in that area after a man came to their home and said he had been involved in a crash. Deputies arrived and found 25-year-old Brandon Paxton of Continental at the house. He told deputies he had lost control of his car and drove into a ditch. Paxton was taken to the Putnam County Ambulatory Care Center in Glandorf for treatment of his injuries.
A press release says Paxton was texting at the time of the crash. Investigators also believe alcohol was a factor. The crash remains under investigation.Read More →
