MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (June 10, 2015)-- Authorities said a 57-year-old man caused two crashes, seriously injuring two bicyclists.
Investigators said a vehicle, driven by Michael Shriver, of Fort Wayne, Ind., was driving westbound on CR 800 South, when he ran a stop sign and hit a vehicle heading southbound on SR 13. The driver of that vehicle, Jacquelin Hall, was taken to Methodist Hospital due to complaints of pain.
After striking Hall's vehicle, Shriver's car continued westbound and into two bicyclists on CR 800 heading the opposite direction. Authorities said the bicyclists were seriously injured. According to a witness on the scene, one bicyclist was pinned under the man’s car.
Shriver is currently in the Madison County Jail on three counts of OWI accident with serious injury.
Rylan Denney drove up to the scene just after the crash happened, and immediately began to help the two bicyclists.
"Went up to the first one, to check to see if she was alright, she was breathing, so then I went to the other lady who was on the ground," Denney recalled. "Her face was well beat up, I had no idea what happened."
The accident is near the same intersection where a teenager was killed after being hit by a car in April.
