MADISON COUNTY – An Elwood man was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital after a Friday morning accident.
Kyle R. Stewart, 24, was driving a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle on State Road 128 when the vehicle’s right wheels dropped off the roadway, according to Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson. The vehicle got back on the road, and then crossed the center line, going across the street into a ditch.
The car rolled across a field before coming to a stop on its wheels. Investigators believe Stewart was ejected from the vehicle during the crash. He was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Elwood before being flown by air ambulance to St. Vincent Hospital 86th Street.
