WASHINGTON COUNTY - JANUARY 24, 2024 - On January 23, 2024, at approximately 4:53 pm members of emergency services were dispatched to the area of 11000 S. State Road 135 in reference to a motor vehicle accident involving three vehicles.

Evidence at the scene and witness statements indicate that Landon Temple, age 21 of Pekin, Indiana was traveling northbound on S. State Road 135, driving a 2015 Ford F-350, pulling a single axle utility trailer.

Brandon Brossman, age 25 of Sullivan, Indiana was also traveling northbound on S. State Road 135, behind Temple. Brossman was driving a 2016 Volvo semi-tractor and trailer, while Brian Cooper, age 45 of Salem, Indiana was traveling southbound on S. State Road 135, driving a 2017 Subaru Forester.

Cooper drove left of center and into the northbound lane, where his vehicle struck the driver’s side of the utility trailer, being pulled by Temple.

Cooper’s vehicle then spun out of control and struck the front driver’s side of Brossman’s semi before Cooper’s vehicle traveled off the west side of the roadway and rolled over an unknown number of times.

Cooper was transported to the Baptist East Floyd County Hospital for treatment of his injuries by the Washington County Ambulance Service.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
