ANDERSON, Ind. – Central Indiana police say a Michigan man apparently set on killing himself began boring into his own skull with a power drill after he crashed his car into a highway guardrail.
Anderson Police spokesman Joel Sandefur says 29-year-old Earl Morgan III of LaPeer, Mich., was in serious condition Wednesday at an Indianapolis hospital.
Police say a witness called 911 Tuesday morning and said he’d just seen a car drive into an Interstate 69 guardrail. The caller said the driver then exited the wrecked car, removed a power drill from the trunk and began drilling into his head behind his right ear.
Police spokesman Joel Sandefur told the Herald Bulletin (http://bit.ly/12KR57N) police are still investigation the reasons for Morgan’s apparent suicide attempts.
Tuesday’s crash snarled traffic along I-69 for hours.
