Two Jackson County residents flown to an Indianapolis hospital after they were hurt in a wreck Friday night have since returned home.

A third person in the vehicle, Steven Eugene Hanner, 42, also of Medora, was not treated for injuries at the scene, according to a report by Jackson County Officer Mark Holt and county Reserve Officer Eric Browalski.
