PLYMOUTH — An officer with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department was injured in a crash Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 30 just east of U.S. 31.
Police say Deputy Jeff Snyder was responding to an industrial accident on the north side of Plymouth when a vehicle driven by Nancy Eldrege of Janesville, Wisconsin drifted into the outside lane. That caused Snyder to drive into the median to avoid hitting Eldrege.
Upon correcting, Snyder lost control of his car and hit an embankment on the north side of the highway. He was treated at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center for minor injuries. Police say his car was a total loss.
