Police news for July 28, 2012

Two women were injured when their vehicles collided and one rolled over at U.S. 33 and Peddlers Village Road at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

According to Goshen police, Judith Atkinson, 74, 60984 C.R. 21, Goshen, was driving a gold 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer southeast on U.S. 33 and attempted to turn left onto Peddlers Village Road. Her vehicle collided with an oncoming silver 2004 Trailblazer driven by Katherine McFarland, 18, 925 S. Main St., Goshen.

The Atkinson vehicle rolled onto its top and the driver was trapped by her seatbelt. She had body pain and was taken to Elkhart General Hospital by Goshen paramedics who freed her. Her injuries were listed as incapacitating but non-life-threatening.

McFarland had non-incapacitating pain in her lower arms. She was taken to IU Health Goshen Hospital by city paramedics for treatment. Her passenger, an infant child, was not hurt.

After the initial crash, McFarland’s vehicle struck a support pole at the nearby railroad crossing.

A passing train stopped at the scene for about an hour, but it was not involved in the crash.

Employee says Goshen store robbed at gunpoint

A Goshen store employee reported to police that he was robbed at gunpoint Thursday night.

Goshen police reported they were called at 10:54 p.m. to the Marathon convenience store at 1149 N. Main St. An employee reported that after he had closed the store and locked the door two men broke the glass in the door, entered and demanded money. The employee reported one of the men had a small handgun and that both men were dressed in black and wore masks.

The employee reported the men took several items from the store and then fled.

Death investigation concludes

Elkhart County police have concluded that intoxication was a contributing factor in the death of a Wakarusa man on July 22.

Sheriff’s Department Capt. Jim Bradberry issued a statement Friday, saying Bryan Kolski, 27, died from blunt force trauma, and that his blood alcohol level was 1.5 times the legal limit for driving. That limit is .08 percent.

Kolski was found at the bottom of the basement stairway at 27842 Ind. 119 near Wakarusa early in the morning. Police reported earlier that a social gathering had taken place at the house following a wedding reception.

Bradberry said, “Investigators have concluded their investigation, which revealed that no criminal act or foul play was suspected in Kolski’s death.”
