Samaritan air ambulance was called to a landing zone, established by the Warsaw Fire Department, in a field on the east side of CR 275 East just north of the crash site.
Today, Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department says Carson M. Epple, 17, of 5321 S. 350 South, Warsaw, was airlifted after he swerved to possibly miss a deer in the road.
Epple crashed his moped and suffered a broken leg.
Damages to the moped were estimated at $500 to $1,000.
