Martin County DWI Crash Injures Five; Passenger Wanted For Check Deception


Martin County: The combination of an intoxicated driver, a slick roadway, and excessive speed resulted in a Sunday morning single vehicle crash that injured five people.

Trooper Jarrod Lents reports that at approximately 9:41 Sunday morning, Brandy C. Nobbe, 30, Indianapolis, was traveling southbound on US 231 at Truelove Church Road when she lost control of her 2000 GMC Safari van on the slick roadway. Nobbe crossed the northbound lane of travel and left the roadway, striking a ditch and a utility pole. The vehicle was totaled in the crash.

Nobbe, along with her adult passenger, Angel Royer, 39, Loogootee, and three children were all transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for injuries. Nobbe was admitted due to sustaining a fractured spine; the other four passengers were treated and released.

Further investigation revealed that Nobbe tested positive for a controlled substance. Due to her being admitted to the hospital for injuries, she was cited into court on a charge of Operating While Intoxicated with Minor Passengers and Speed too Fast for Weather Conditions. Trooper Lents additionally found that Royer was wanted out of Daviess and Spencer Counties for charges of Check Deception. She was placed into custody and transported to the Daviess County Jail.
