2 days, 2 fatal car wrecks in Parke County

ROCKVILLE — The Parke County Sheriff’s Department has investigated two fatal accidents over the past two days, at least one caused by black ice, authorities say.

On Sunday, police responded to a single motor-vehicle accident at about 9 p.m. on U.S. 36 near Midway Road, between Montezuma and Rockville.

When officers arrived, they found two people trapped in the vehicle, driver Larry McDaniel, 53, and passenger Ellen McDaniel, 23, both of Montezuma.

Fire units from Adams Township were contacted for extrication equipment.

Larry McDaniel was pronounced dead at the scene, and Ellen McDaniel was transported to Union Hospital of Clinton for minor injuries.

Larry McDaniel was driving a Ford Ranger west on U.S. 36 when it struck a patch of black ice, which caused the vehicle to go off the road and strike a tree, according to the sheriff’s department.

Tragedy struck again about 3:30 p.m. Monday in a fatal accident that left a woman, as yet unnamed, dead.

The accident happened on Indiana 59, just south of Mansfield, according to the sheriff’s department.

A 78-year-old female was driving her car south on Indiana 59 when she hit a tree; she did not survive.

Further details were not immediately available Monday night.
