New Palestine Indiana Car Accident

In New Palestine, a woman lost her life after her car was involved in a three car accident. The woman, Tammy Farver, was 41 and an Indianapolis native. It is alleged that she was driving west on the U.S. 52 and got hit as she attempted to turn south to get into the First Merchants Bank parking lot nearby. Her car got rear-ended by a wrecker which was being driven by 33-year-old Jason Holderfield, also from Indianapolis. While police didn’t suspect alcohol or drugs, Mr. Holderfield stated that he didn’t remember how the accident happened or the crash. Ms. Farver died from her injuries, while Jason was treated at a nearby hospital for serious but non-threatening injuries.
