On Dec. 27, 2021 at approximately 5:58 a.m. the sheriff’s office received a phone call in reference to an accident with injury on State Route 643 near Township Road 227 in Crawford Township.

Upon arrival of emergency personnel, it was determined that Bruce King, 65 years old, of Millersburg, was traveling North on State Route 643 when negotiating a curve and lost control of the vehicle. King’s vehicle crossed the center line going off the left side of the roadway and over an embankment, continuing through a ditch before striking a tree and coming to a rest.

Three other passengers were in King’s vehicle.  Eli Barkman Jr, 45 years old, of Fresno, Atlee Burkholder, 39 years old, of Fresno, and David Troyer, 20 years old, of Fresno. Barkman Jr. was transported by emergency squad to Union Hospital in Dover. All other occupants were treated and released on scene.
