Sheriff's Dept.

One accident was recently turned in at the Putnam County Sheriff's Department.

* At 3 a.m. on C.R. 725 East near Groveland, Zach Bullerdick, 17, Coatesville, was northbound on C.R. 725 East. He accelerated as evidenced by yaw marks in the wet roadway as he turned from C.R. 525 North.

His vehicle slid off the travel portion of the roadway on the east side where his left rear-wheel struck a tree. The force of the impact ripped the wheel from the vehicle and caused extensive damage. He then tried to return his vehicle to the roadway prior to the arrival of the police not knowing his tire was missing. He was transported to Putnam County Jail where he tested .16-percent Blood Alcohol Content. Damage was estimated at $5,000 - $10,000.
