Two weeks after a hit-and-run accident, one man is facing nearly three months of rehabilitation, and another remains in a coma.
Grant Black had multiple injuries, including 16 fractured ribs, a broken fibula, a broken sternum and a shattered elbow. On Thursday, he was transferred from Indiana University Health Methodist hospital to Todd-Aikens Rehabilitation Center in Franklin.
Another driver, Mitchell Wohlmuth of Brown County, remains in a coma at IU Health Methodist Hospital. Wohlmuth has been in a coma since the accident and also has two broken legs, said his wife Mary Anne Litwicki.
Franklin police are looking for the third driver from the accident, who struck Black’s vehicle, pushing it into a head-on collision with Wohlmuth’s vehicle. Black said the other driver was in a tan or white sport-utility vehicle.
A Franklin organization is planning a benefit breakfast to help pay the medical costs for Black.
The Franklin Masonic Lodge No. 107, located at 801 N. Main St., will serve biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, fried potatoes and drinks on Feb. 20 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Breakfast is $6 per person.
