Police Investigate Break-in
November 12, 2008 - Two accidents and one residential break-in were investigated by the Knightstown Police Dept. last week.
Officer Derek Hall was called to a residence at 129 W. Jackson on November 4. Christopher Hines returned home about 8:30 p.m. and found that his flat screen television was missing, plus his daughter’s cell home.
According to police, the case is still under investigation.
An accident was reported November 8 at 7:43 a.m. on I-70 east of mile marker 117. Officer Thomas Jenkins was the investigating officer.
According to the report, Stephen S. Smith of Dayton, Ohio, was driving a leased truck for Centerville Band Booster which was owned by Penske Truck Leasing Co. in Ft. Wayne. The driver stated that he was westbound on I-70 in the driving lane when he signaled to change lanes. He stated that he noticed a car in the left lane but didn’t realize it was as close as it was as he pulled into the passing lane.
The other car, driven by Nicole M. Martin of Washington, IN, told police she was attempting to pass the truck and noticed him pulling out into the passing lane and could not avoid the collision. Both vehicles ended off the roadway. Damages to the 1999 Ford Escort driven by Martin and the Penske truck were estimated at $5,000.
A second accident was investigated on November 6 on State Road 109 near 850 S. Hugh D. Andrews of Mays told police officer Daniel Denny that he was southbound on SR 109 when a deer jumped into the roadway and he could not avoid hitting the deer.
Damages to Andrew’s 1993 Honda Civic were estimated at $2,500.
