10-YEAR-OLD DIES AFTER STATE ROAD 252 ACCIDENT
An accident resulted in the death of an Edinburgh boy Friday. Reports say around 3 p.m., Ethan Powell, 10, was crossing State Road 252 in front of his home to check the mailbox. He didn’t see the oncoming westbound van before he was hit. Powell died shortly after arriving at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. Police believe that driver Ray Chaney, 81, of Indianapolis, will not be charged because he didn’t have time to react. Powell was the son of Jason Powell, a Franklin firefighter, and Erin Powell, and he was a student at East Side Elementary School.
