Driver critically injured after being ejected in crash

Posted:

A Larwill man is in critical condition after his car went airborne and crashed into a utility pole.

The Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department says it happened early Sunday morning on State Road 14 near Packerton Road.

Police says 25 year old Jeffery Reiff left the road, overcorrected and hit an embankment.

That caused the car to go airborne into a utility pole.

Police say the car rolled several times, landing on its roof.

Reiff was ejected.

He was flown to the hospital where he's in critical condition.

His passenger was in fair condition.

Officers believe that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
