MIDDLEBURY — The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department reported early Thursday morning, Nov. 28, that a driver broke his leg when he was ejected from his car after he drove off U.S. 20 about a mile and a half east of Middlebury.

Daniel S. Little of Mishawaka was taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital to be treated for a fractured leg around 3 a.m., according to a report by the sheriff’s department. The 33-year-old man was driving west on U.S. 20 east of C.R. 33 when he left the north edge of the road for an unknown reason. The sheriff’s department reported that Little was “found to be intoxicated pending further investigation.”

A press release indicated that Little was not wearing a seatbelt. His car, a 2008 Chevy Aveo, had extensive damage, according to the sheriff’s department.

No citations were issued, but deputies are still investigating.
