Delphi woman in critical condition after Friday’s crash


CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Delphi woman is still in critical condition after a head-on crash near Indiana Packers Friday night.

According to hospital officials, 75-year-old Sandra Massey of Delphi was in critical condition as of 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Massey was the passenger of a car involved in a head-on collision on U.S. 421 just after 11 p.m. Friday. Massey and the passenger inside the other vehicle, 20-year-old Kalie Sizemore of Idaville, were flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis by separate helicopters, a police report says.

Hospital officials say Sizemore is in good condition at this time.

The crash report says 18-year-old Brenden Fearnow of Frankfort told police he was distracted and trying to reach for something when he crossed the center line and hit a car driven by 64-year-old Rita Darnell of Lafayette head-on.

Darnell and Massey were in the same car.

Darnell was taken by ambulance to the hospital with an arm injury. Massey was pinned inside the car by the dash and had to be removed by fire crews.

Fearnow was treated at the scene and refused to be taken to the hospital. Sizemore was partially ejected into the back seat and suffered a severe head laceration.
