UPDATE: Steven Lang In Stable Condition At Louisville; Was Driving With Suspended License (with VIDEO)
JASPER (NNDC) – The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says 19-year old Steven Lang of Eckerty was in surgery this morning at University of Louisville Hospital for a broken femur he suffered yesterday when his pickup truck crashed into the back of a house along Schnellville Road just west of Birdseye. A hospital spokesperson says is stable condition this morning.
DCSD says Lang was injured in an accident back in 2012 when he was a student at Crawford County High School near Marengo. The accident left him with restricted use of his legs below the knees. He does use a wheel chair, but it appears he does use his feet to drive as the truck was not equipped with any hand-controls.
DCSD says Lang was also driving with a suspended license at the time of Wednesday’s accident. DCSD says Lang’s pickup truck crashed into the back of the home of Tina Madden on the northeast corner of East Schnellville Road and South 1025 East at about 3:15pm Wednesday.
Two people were inside the house at the time, but were not hurt. The force of the impact caused the entire house to shift on its foundation and his now deemed uninhabitable.
