One person has been injured in a head on collision that happened late Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office responded to the reports of a crash at the intersection of State Road 1 and County Road 64 just after 4 p.m. The location is roughly halfway between Spencerville and St. Joe.

Reports indicate that Stephen Witte, age 28 of St. Joe, was traveling south on State Road 1 when he encountered traffic that had slowed because of another vehicle turning left. Witte was unable to stop in time and crossed the center line to avoid hitting the cars in front of him.

Authorities say that while trying to stop Witte hit a 2009 Dodge Journey driven by David Gilbert, age 50 of Bulter.

Gilbert was taken to the hospital with lacerations to his head and chest. Witte refused medical treatment.

Both vehicles were totaled. Witte was issued a citation for crossing the center line.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Indiana State Police, South East Fire, and DeKalb EMS.
