Sheriff’s Department

Putnam County sheriff’s deputies investigated three recent property-damage crashes.

• At 2:46 a.m. on Wednesday, Jeanette P. Roehr, 22, Carbon, was eastbound on State Road 240 about 1,000 feet west of County Road 425 East in a 2000 Plymouth Breeze when a dog entered the road.

Roehr told Deputy Jeffery Freeman she swerved to avoid the animal, lost control and began spinning. The car hit the guardrail several times before coming to rest on the guardrail facing west.

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

• At 10:38 p.m. on Sunday, Sharon E. Davis, 70, Columbus, Ohio, was eastbound on U.S. 36 entering Bainbridge in a 2013 Volkswagen Golf.

The vehicle left the road at the Y-intersection with Main Street. Deputy Robert Soilleux said there were no marks on the road that indicated Davis tried to brake or steer to avoid leaving the road.

After leaving the road, the vehicle apparently bottomed out. The passenger side mirror and front quarter panel grazed the Town of Bainbridge sign.

The vehicle continued another 175 yards before crashing into a three-foot brick wall surrounding the flag pole in front of the Bainbridge Fire Department.

Davis was transported from the scene by Operation Life due to the severity of her injuries.

Damage was estimated at $25,001-$50,000. The car was towed.

• At 1:40 p.m. on Sunday, Donald J. Schicker, 64, Fillmore, was eastbound on County Road 100 North approaching County Road 275 East in a 2014 Ford Flex.

Schicker told Lt. Donnie Pettit he had been following another driver in an attempt to obtain a license plate number. Schicker said the other vehicle was being driven backward on 100 North.

The other vehicle turned north onto 275 East and Schicker followed, but lost control and hit a power pole on the east side of the road.

Damage was estimated at $2,501-$5,000 and Schicker’s vehicle did not have to be towed.

The driver of the other vehicle, Robert Gregory of North Salem, told Pettit he was being followed by Schicker and was attempting to turn around at the intersection. He said he had started backing up in order to get away from Schicker.

Babett Gregory of Coatesville, Robert Gregory’s passenger, also said that they were trying to get away from Schicker. She told Pettit that Schicker was very close to their bumper as they tried to get away.
