Icy road conditions on I-69 in Huntington County on Tuesday caused an Adams County Sheriff's Department transport officer escorting two adult prisoners to the Department of Corrections near Indianapolis to lose control of his squad car, resulting in heavy damage to the vehicle.
ACSD Chief Deputy Eric Beer said this morning that veteran reserve officer Fritz Bultemeyer, rural Decatur, was southbound on I-69 when the car hit a patch of ice on the road, causing it to spin out of control and into a nearby field where it struck a fence.
Police in the Holland, Michigan, area have Wade R. Cron, a 26-year-old Decatur resident, in custody.
Cron will be returned to Decatur as soon as arrangements can be made by law-enforcement authorities here.
Cron is wanted here on a charge of criminal confinement, a class D felony.
