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.

    The superintendent chose to not close school today. Had it not been for the state's precious I-Step (state testing), closing school would have been a no-brainer.
    When will they start to put our precious kids ahead of their precious agendas?

    One of those injured was a 17 year old. My guess is it was a kid on his way to school, which should have been closed.

      I'm guessing he was hauling ass because he doesn't know how drive in snow, or probably on his phone.

    • Really?!

      What in the world makes you think that school should have been cancelled in Noblesville?! I went to work at 7:30am and the roads were ok at the time. They were wet and a little slushy in places but that just means you have to slow down and pay attention!

    I agree with safety guy the 17 yr old was most likely going to fast for road conditions and went to turn and slid into the SUV pushing both off of the road and flipping the SUV I think they need to raise the driving age to 18 at least

      18 would mean kids go to college and do not have enough driving experience at all. This was an accident and was due to driving too fast for the weather conditions. I know 40 year old drivers who do that.
