GREENE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

* Feb. 29 -- No injuries were reported after an accident involving two vehicles at 3:23 p.m. on State Road 59 at the intersection of County Road 300 North, also known as Bolton Road in Stockton Township. Sue Carrie Crandell, 16, Linton, was southbound on S.R. 59 in a 1994 Chevrolet truck and was attempting to turn west onto C.R. 300 N. Greene County Sheriff's Deputy Skyler Pittman wrote in the accident report that Crandell was traveling too fast to negotiate the turn and then struck a 2005 Ford Taurus being driven by Barbara West, 55, Jasonville. After hitting West's vehicle near the rear bumper, Crandell's truck continued on and struck a utility pole on the south side of the county road before coming to rest in a ditch just east of the railroad tracks on Bolton Rd. Greene County Rescue and Greene County Ambulance Service personnel were called to the scene to evaluate both drivers but there were no injuries. The Linton Fire Department also responded to the scene.

* Mar. 1 -- Greene County Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy D. Cook, 30, Owensburg, was not injured in an accident involving a patrol vehicle at 7:50 p.m. on County Road 525 North in Beech Creek Township. Cook was enroute in a 2005 Ford Explorer to assist another officer who was responding to a 911 call reporting individuals in a field near C.R. 525 N. were shouting and screaming in a wooded area. According to a report by Indiana State Police Trooper Eric Russell, as Deputy Cook rounded a curve on C.R. 525 N., his commission struck loose sand - a winter mix of sand and salt. Cook applied the brakes but the vehicle began to slide in the sand. He said he was unable to stop. The vehicle then left the roadway on the east side and slid into a ravine. It overturned once as it traveled down the embankment then came to rest on its wheels. Others who assisted on the scene included GCSD personnel and the Greene County Ambulance Service.

When the two vehicles met in a curve, the rear of Smith's vehicle struck the front driver's side of Hoy's vehicle. GCSD Deputy Terry Wade reported that Smith was issued one summons for operating a vehicle without financial responsibility and another to appear in court for operating a vehicle without ever receiving a driver's license. Bays Wrecker Service and Garage assisted on the scene.
