Two people extricated from vehicles after serious crash in Noblesville
The Noblesville Police Department is investigating an accident that sent two people to the hospital Wednesday morning.
Emergency crews responded to the two-vehicle crash at the intersection of State Road 37 and Field Drive in Noblesville at approximately 9:30 a.m.
According to preliminary investigation, a 2005 Toyota Cambry, driven by 17-year-old Noah O’Connor, was driving southbound on SR 37 and was attempting to make a right turn onto Field Drive when the crash occurred. Authorities said a 2004 Saturn Vue, driven by 38-year-old Paul Siktberg, was stopped at the intersection when it was struck by the Toyota.
The impact caused both vehicles to leave the roadway and come to a rest in a ditch on the southwest corner of the intersection. Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles. They were both transported to Riverview Hospital in Noblesville with non-life threatening injuries.
Southbound SR 37 was closed for about an hour for crash cleanup.
The crash is still under investigation. However, officials said road conditions at the time of the crash were wet and slushy.
