(11-7-17)  17 year old Katelynn Altman of Montezuma was struck and injured while she tried to walk across the  roadway at around 6:30 AM this morning by a vehicle, driven by 27 year old Aubrey Homan of Celina. The incident happened at the corner of State Route 703 and State Route 219 in Montezuma.

Altman was attempting to cross the road to get ready to board a school bus,  but she was not in the walkway when she crossed , was dressed in dark clothing and with the time-change it was still dark at that time. When Homan entered the intersection the traffic signal was green when the accident took place.

Altman was transported with minor injuries to Mercer Health in Coldwater, according to the Mercer County Sheriff’s office Homan will most likely not be charged based on early information.
