Crash sends man, two cats to doctors; woman to jail

Staff writer

An unusual two-vehicle rollover Monday on US-77 north of 140th Rd. sent one man to the hospital, two cats to the vet, and a woman to Marion County Jail.

A car plowed into the back of Devin Soyez’s truck, Undersheriff Larry Starkey said. Sheriff’s deputies arrested the car’s driver, Casey B. Galbraith, 27, of Harrisburg, Indiana, on suspicion of aggravated battery, battery of a law enforcement officer, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, transporting an open container of alcohol, and driving a vehicle that was both unregistered and without insurance.

A license check for Galbraith came back to Colorado, but the jail listed her as an Indiana resident.

Undersheriff Larry Starkey took the cats to Animal Health Center in Marion. Florence firefighters and rescue squad members also responded to the crash.

Doctors at St. Luke’s Hospital treated Soyez and released him Monday.
