Two Franklin County residents injured in rollover accident south of Ottawa

August 12, 2011


Two Franklin County residents were injured Friday morning in a rollover accident on a county road south of Ottawa, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Jerrod Fredricks, a sheriff’s spokesman, said George Brockus, 80, of Princeton, lost control of his vehicle about 11 a.m. Friday while headed east in the 2100 block of Douglas Road, which is gravel near Princeton.

Brockus and a passenger, Sue Brockus, 78, were taken to Ransom Memorial Hospital in Ottawa. Their injuries were not believed to be serious, Fredricks said.

The vehicle rolled onto its top, and Brockus had to be extricated, Fredricks said, and officers were still investigating the cause of the crash.

What are you talking about? George Brockus is 80, and the passenger, Sue Brockus, is 78. Instead of making fun of them, my heart goes out to them to recover and live well into their 90s. I can't believe the kind of comments some people make or why they make them. It isn't funny, it's very callous and inconsiderate.
