City Police

Two property-damage accidents were investigated recently by Greencastle City Police officers.

* At 11:07 a.m. Monday, a two-vehicle mishap was reported on Indianapolis Road near 10th Street.

Assistant Chief Brian Hopkins reported that Haily Query, 29, Greencastle, was westbound on Indianapolis Road, driving a 2005 Chevrolet when she was distracted by the vehicle behind her that appeared to be following too closely.

Consequently, Query did not notice in time that the vehicle in front of her, a 2001 Ford F-250 truck driven by Anthony Austin, 18, Greencastle, was stopping and a collision resulted.

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

* At 12:48 p.m. Saturday, a two-vehicle accident occurred on Bloomington Street near Veterans Memorial Highway.

Officer Darrell Bunten reported that a 2014 Ford Fuson, driven by Sarah Glover, 32, Coatesville, and a 2005 Freightliner semi, driven by Aeeman Hadi, 26, Flint., Mich., collided as they both attempted to turn off Bloomington Street onto Veterans Highway.

Glover told police she was northbound on Bloomington and got into the turn lane to merger onto Veterans Highway when she said the semi made an abrupt turn and a collision occurred.

Hadi, meanwhile, said he was making a wide right turn in the semi onto Veterans Highway when Glover tried to go around him on the right.

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

Sheriff's Department

* At 12:32 a.m. Sunday, Jayne A. Harwood, 59, Greencastle, was westbound on County Road 50 North in a 2011 Ford SUV.

Harwood advised Deputy Mike Downing she struck a deer with the left front side of her vehicle.

Damage was listed at $1,001-$2,500.

* At 1:16 a.m. Sunday, Cody S. Sims, 29, Fillmore, was eastbound on County Road 450 North in a 1994 Ford F150, approaching the intersection of County Road 325 West.

Due to speed and the wet road, he misjudged the distance from the T intersection, sliding off the road and hitting a fence post and a concrete culvert.

When Deputy Downing arrived, he could not find anyone around but found blood and hair on the passenger side of the windshield, as if someone's head had hit the glass, breaking it from the inside.

Downing was later notified by dispatch that a woman was at Putnam County Hospital who had been involved in the accident. The injured woman was Reylynn A. Pineda, 23, Greencastle.

Downing later located Sims, who was cited for leaving the scene of an accident.

Damage was listed at $5,001-$10,000.

* At 1:45 a.m. Sunday, Jerry Fresler, 66, Huntingburg, was northbound on U.S. 231, approaching County Road 1300 South, in a 2007 Toyota Prius.

He advised Deputy Virgil Lanning that a deer entered the roadway and he struck it.

Damage listed at $1,001-$2,500.

* At 3:07 a.m. Sunday, Charles C. Jordan, 39, Coatesville, was westbound on U.S. 36 when he hit a fallen tree in the road. Deputy Downing noted in the report the accident caused significant damage.

Damage listed as $10,001-$25,000.

* At 5:40 a.m. Sunday, James A. Onock IV, 32, Coatesville, was eastbound on County Road 600 North in a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis.

Onock advised Deputy Downing he met an orange Camaro with black racing stripes driving left of the center. He said he tried to swerve, but the Camaro made impact with his left mirror, breaking the glass but causing no additional damage.

The Camaro left the scene and officers were unable to locate it.

Damage listed less than $1,000.
