Sheriff's Department

* On Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 3:20 p.m. Ryan C. Rooksberry, 16, Poland, was northbound on U.S. 231 approaching County Road 1200 South in a 2005 Ford F250. Robert Reynolds, 68, Solsberry, was also northbound on U.S. 231 in a 1995 Mack semi tractor-trailer.

Rooksberry said he had his left turn signal on, preparing to turn left onto the county road. However, Reynolds said Rooksberry's right turn signal was activated.

Believing the pickup was turning right, Reynolds attempted to pass Rooksberry on the left side, hitting the driver's side door of Rooksberry's truck.

Damage $2,501-$5,000.

* On Thursday, Aug. 2 at 6:20 a.m. Kyle App, 37, Montezuma, was eastbound on U.S. 36 in a 2005 Ford F150 when he hit a deer.

Damage $2,501-$5,000.

* At 7:51 a.m. Corey M. Reeves, 24, Greencastle, was westbound on County Road 75 North when his 1992 Toyota Corolla left the road.

Reeves then overcorrected, causing him to lose control. He said his car slid sideways several times before colliding head on with the 2006 Chrysler 300 driven eastbound by Jacquelyn Y. Eitel, 55, Greencastle.

Eitel noticed Reeves lose control, so she tried to slow down and stay right, but she could not avoid the collision.

Eitel suffered bruising to her head in the collision.

Reeves was cited for driving with a suspended license.

Damage $5,001-$10,000.
