Clark Co. (News Release) - On Sunday July 13, 2014, at about 5:15 a.m., the Clark County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call of a two vehicle crash at the intersection of Twenty Six Road and Meridian Avenue in the Township of Sherman.

Initial investigation shows that a vehicle was southbound on Meridian Ave, being driven by 21-year-old Elizabeth A. Breu. It failed to yield at a stop sign and entered the intersection of Twenty Six Road. As it entered the intersection it struck the passenger side of a west bound truck being driven by 16-year-old Marvin W. High.

After being struck by the car, Marvin’s truck entered the south ditch, started to spin and flipped onto its side striking a power pole. The truck then bounced off the pole and came to rest on its wheels. Elizabeth’s vehicle spun and entered the southwest ditch striking a second power pole located at the intersection.

Elizabeth was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield for non-life threatening injuries. Marvin was pronounced dead at the scene by Clark County Coroner Richard Schleifer. The Spencer Area Fire Department and Ambulance Service responded to the scene. Seatbelts were used by both operators and speed is not believed to be a factor.

Investigation is continuing into the crash. This is the 2nd traffic fatality in Clark County for 2014.
