A Pulaski County man was killed in a Tuesday head-on accident.


Just before 10:00 am, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office responded to U.S. Highway 421, north of County Road 200 South. The initial investigation determined Joshua Overmyer, 37, of Winamac, was operating a 2008 Kenworth gravel truck southbound on U.S. Highway 421.  Franklin Clemons, 48, of Francesville, was operating a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser northbound on U.S. Highway 421 when for unknown reasons Clemons’ vehicle drove left of center and collided head on with the gravel truck.

Clemons was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash by the Pulaski County Coroner.

Overmyer was transported to Pulaski Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injury and released.

U.S. Highway 421 was closed for approximately six hours while the crash was investigated. Indiana State Police Crash reconstructionists were requested and assisted with the investigation.
