* Oct. 29, 4:35 p.m.: Brandy Weaver, 23, Cloverdale, was southbound on US 231, approaching the intersection with CR 1200S in a 2000 Buick LeSabre. Weaver said the 2004 Pontiac driven by Aletha D. Mann, 20, Cloverdale, suddenly braked to make a left turn at the intersection. Weaver could not avoid the collision.

Neither driver was sure if Mann had signaled to turn.

Both vehicles towed by Steele's. Damage $2,501-$5,000.

* Nov. 1, 5:34 a.m.: Mark D. Davis, 50, Greencastle, was westbound on US 40 in a 1979 American Motors Jeep in the right lane. Davis said he was going approximately 35 miles per hour because of the high concentration of deer in the area. He said he saw a vehicle's headlights approaching rapidly in the rear view mirror and was struck immediately after.

Flynt T. Gibbs, 24, Cloverdale, said he was westbound at approximately 55 miles per hour in a 2003 Dodge Ram. He saw Gibbs' Jeep in front of him, but could not avoid striking it. After impact, Gibbs lost control of his vehicle, continuing into the woods north of the road and down an embankment.

The investigating officer inspected the Jeep for operating tail lights and discovered a damaged wiring harness due to the collision. However, the circuit was operational at the point of damage.

Davis' vehicle towed by Seniour's. Gibbs' vehicle towed by Steele's. Damage $10,001-$25,000.

* Nov. 4, 3:40 p.m.: Christine Taylor, 60, Poland, was northbound on US 231 just north of US 40 in a 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser.
