For immediate release: June 12, 2018

 

Whitestown, IN- Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an Off-Road Vehicle crash involving injury that occurred last evening. 

 

On June 11, at approximately 6:28 pm, Conservation Officers and other first responders were dispatched to the area of Main Street and Albert S White Drive in Whitestown for an ORV crash.
