* On Sunday, Feb. 25 at 5:20 a.m. Dustin J. Towers, 20, Greencastle, was eastbound on County Road 200 North just east of County Road 50 east in a 2002 Saturn SL1. Towers said the driver's side rear passenger Jonathan D. Eversole, 22, Greencastle, climbed out of the window and onto the car roof while the vehicle was in motion.

Towers said Eversole then proceeded to the hood and was knelt down on the driver's side, blocking Towers' view. Eversole then yelled for Towers to stop as the car approached a curve.

Towers braked, which ejected Eversole from the hood. Eversole was struck by the front of the car as he was rolling off the hood.

According to Towers and witnesses, Eversole was thrown approximately 30 feet from the vehicle and came to rest in the middle of the road.

Eversole was transported to Putnam County Hospital with head and internal injuries. He was later airlifted to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.
