The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office said a 2013 Chevy Silverado truck driven by 55-year-old Scott Richard Chambers of Pendleton was going westbound on 67 when the vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with an eastbound 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup driven by 21-year-old Braxton Lee Patton on Muncie.
