Deputies: Alcohol and speed believed factors in rollover crash

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Deputies with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office said speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a crash Saturday evening.

The single vehicle crash occurred just before 6 p.m. on State Road 38 near County Road 950 East.

According the sheriff’s office, the car driven by 46-year-old Robert Gall, of Logansport, crested a hill while driving west and became airborne. As the car landed on the roadway, Gall swerved to avoid a vehicle heading east. He then rolled his car multiple times into an adjoining field.

“He was extricated and there were signs that alcohol was involved in the crash,” said Sgt. Andrew Heath. “The other witness was very shaken up, didn’t really have a lot of other information other than she was almost hit head on.”

Gall was taken to IU Health Arnett with unknown injuries. Traffic was diverted for about an hour while crews cleaned up the scene.
