"Car crashes into restaurant in downtown Madison"

A downtown Madison restaurant is closed Monday after a vehicle went through the front of the building Sunday evening. At around 8 p.m. Sunday, the Madison Police Department responded to reports of an accident on Main Street. A white BMW SUV had crashed through the front of The Downtowner, located at 104 East Main Street. According to police, a 20-year-old Madison resident was being taught how to parallel park on Main Street when her foot slipped off of the brake and onto the accelorator, sending the vehicle into the building. The Downtowner was closed at the time of the incident and nobody was inside. Nobody in the vehicle reported any injuries. Downtowner owner Audrey Barnes told WORX-FM's Kelley Hoagland that "Everyone is safe and the building is replaceable." No charges were filed in the incident.


"State Road 62 bridge work postponed"

Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation postponed construction on the State Road 62 bridge east of State Road 250 until Monday, June 22. The work was originally scheduled for June 8. The work, which requires repairs to the bridge structure and installation of a 2 1/4 inch deck overlay, will close the bridge from June 8 through the end of July. The bridge spans the west fork of Indian-Kentuck Creek. A signed detour will be placed to reroute traffic around the construction site via State road 129 and US 421. Dave O'Mara Inc. is the contractor for the project.
