WARSAW – A Warsaw man was airlifted from the scene of a car crash east of Atwood late Friday afternoon.

On Friday, July 5, at 4:34 p.m., emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle crash on West Crystal Lake Road, near North Parks Schram Road, Warsaw.

According to an accident report from the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office, Franklin H. Pfeiffer, 80, of Warsaw, was driving a black 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Limited westbound on West Crystal Lake Road. Pfeiffer’s vehicle left the south side of the roadway, entered a culvert and was thrown into the air.

The Cruze then re-entered the eastbound lanes and struck a traffic sign.

Due to his injuries, Pfeiffer was unable to provide any further information about the accident. He was flown out of the scene of the accident due to knee, lower leg and foot injuries.

The damage is estimated at $10,000.
