Fatal accident caused by icy roads

Sadly falling temperatures and icy road conditions contributed to several accidents and one fatality in Cloverdale, Indiana on Sunday. Furthermore, a two-vehicle accident happened on U.S. 231 and U.S. 40, which killed 60-year-old, John Starr. The accident occurred when Starr was traveling southbound on U.S. 231, and crossed the path of, 35-year-old, TImonty Helton who was driving a pickup. Helton and his passenger were transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, and the roadway was closed for a few hours for cleanup. Likewise, while, at the scene of the accident, a Cloverdale Fire truck was hit from behind while it was parked for assisting in the cleanup. There were firemen inside at the time of the crash, but luckily all were still seat belted when it was hit from behind.
