Sgt. Rich Kelly Indiana State Police life was spared today.

He was sitting alongside I-65 conducting a level III inspection

when another semi-tractor pulling a flatbed ran over the top of

his police car. Sgt. Kelly sustained a broken vertebrae and was

able to exit his car and use his cell telephone to call for help.

The driver that struck him was going too fast and locked his

brakes up thus losing control. The crash is still under investigation.

 

When you look at the photo you realize only by the grace of God,

Sgt. Kelly's life was spared. Rich and his wife have 4 young

daughters. It is hard to believe that Sgt. Kelly survived this crash.

He was in the car at the time of the crash.
