A North Vernon man suffered critical injuries Friday morning when his pickup truck slid off U.S. 50 and slammed into a tree near Hayden.

Justin Adams, 22, is now recovering at Uni­versity Hospital in Louis­ville after being flown there by a Stat Flight helicopter crew following the accident.

"Justin is doing well," said his father, Jeremy, on Monday morning via telephone from the hospital. "He had surgery on his ankle, his lungs are severely bruised and he has some bruising on his face. He'll be laid up for a while, but he's going to be OK."

The deployment of airbags and the fact that Adams was wearing a seat belt probably saved his life, according to Jennings County Sher­iff's Deputy Anthony Maberry.

The force of the impact was considerable as the police photographs indicate. The 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 driven by Adams was a total loss.

Merriment on Meloy Street
Merriment on Meloy Street
The Christmas season has long been extra bright and colorful outside the home of Randy and Luann Wilkerson in North Vernon, and this year the holiday display is more dazzling than ever. Two full lots at the corner of Meloy Street and Shadeland Avenue are packed with Christmas decorations of all sizes, shapes and designs, attracting carloads of people nightly to enjoy not just the sights but the sounds from the music accompanies the sprawling display. The tradition of decorating the property for the holidays was started by the late J.F. Wilkerson over 20 years ago.-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
