Bruce Caffee Killed and Mariah Crowe Injured in State Street Accident

Steve Wagner

In a tragic accident last Sunday, motorcyclist Bruce Caffee was killed in a collision with a car on the southeast side of Columbus, IN.

Investigations are showing that a Pontiac car was making a left turn onto CR 200 South, but then realized it had made a wrong turn, and attempted to turn around by pulling across the northbound lane of traffic.

Caffee, 44-years-old, and Mariah Crowe, his 32-year-old passenger, were riding in the northbound lane on CR 200, and were struck by the Pontiac during the turnaround attempt.

Caffee was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Crowe was air-lifted to IU Methodist Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Pontiac, 32-year-old Joshua Smith, sustained cuts on his hands and was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital as a result.
