ISP investigating Wabash County fatal accident

A Wabash County fatal accident remains under investigation. 


Indiana State Police and North Manchester Police responded to the two vehicle crash on Wabash County Road 1050 North east of State Road 15 Thursday afternoon.


Zachary Smith, 29, of Claypool, was driving a 2017 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on County Road 1050 North.  For an undetermined reason, the motorcycle crossed the center line, entered the westbound lane and continued into the north side ditch.


Peter Iseton, 50, of Silver Lake, was driving a Ford Ranger westbound when the motorcycle crossed into his path. He attempted to avoid hitting the motorcycle by turning into the north side ditch, but he could not avoid the motorcycle. After impact, Smith was ejected from the motorcycle.


Smith died at the scene. Iseton was not injured.


Indiana State Police say this is an ongoing investigation, but neither alcohol nor drugs is suspected.
