Fatal Accident


On November 6, 2021 at approximately 7:33 a.m., the Carmel Police and Fire Departments responded to single-vehicle crash at the intersection of 106th Street and Ditch Road. Based upon the preliminary investigation, it appears that a Ford truck traveling westbound at a high speed did not negotiate the intersection properly. It then crashed into the structure in the middle of the intersection. As a result of the impact, the truck rolled onto its roof and came to rest northwest of the intersection. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, 35-year old Paul Morse, Carmel, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Carmel Fire Department assisted in extracting the victim from the vehicle and as well as providing medical aid. Both roads were blocked in all directions for several hours while the Carmel Police Accident Investigation Team worked the scene and will be investigating to determine the cause of the crash. It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this crash.
