County Jail

At 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Brittany May Will, 23, Indianapolis, was booked into the Putnam County Jail for failure to appear, operating while intoxicated and possession of paraphernalia.

Sheriff's Department

At 2:32 p.m. Tuesday, Amber N. Hauck, 18, Coatesville, was westbound on County Road 200 North, just east of 750 East, in a 2000 Ford. For unknown reasons, Hauck lost control of the car in the rain.

The car spun off the road, hitting a utility pole with the driver's side, making impact in between the front wheel and the driver's door.

The collision split the pole.

Hauck was transported to Hendricks Regional Health by Operation Life ambulance.

Damage was estimated at $2,501-$5,000.

City Police

One minor traffic accident was investigated recently by Greencastle City Police officers.

The mishap occurred at 5:13 p.m. Saturday on North Jackson Street, near Earp Street, as Dallas Strother, 27, Greencastle, was northbound on Jackson Street, driving a 1994 Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Capt. Mike Hanlon reported that Strother had stopped his vehicle to turn left and was waiting on southbound traffic to clear, when it was struck in the rear by a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora, driven by Sally Mayall, 53, Greencastle.

Mayall said she did not see the Strother vehicle had stopped because another car in front of her drove around the stopped pickup on the shoulder at the last second to avoid a collision.

Total damage was listed at $2,500-$5,000.

Three recent traffic citations were issued by city officers.

-- At 10:15 p.m. Tuesday, Andrew Pfeiffer, 20, Greencastle, was ticketed on Veterans Memorial Highway by Sgt. Charles Inman for an improper license plate display.

-- At 10:45 p.m. Monday, Terry King II, 26, Coatesville, was cited by Officer Matt Huffman at Washington and South Jackson streets for operating a vehicle without financial responsibility (no insurance).

-- At 12:13 p.m. Saturday, Stephen Seketa, 33, Greencastle, was ticketed on Albin Pond Road by Capt. Hanlon for having an expired license plate (October 2012).
