 Knightstown Police Track Down Driver After Accident

April 15, 2009 - Police investigated an accident April 10 in the 400 block of E. Morgan St. after a report from a resident of an overturned vehicle. Officer Anthony Lorton responded to the call and found a black Durango overturned in the driveway of Gary and Katherine Patrick at 421 E. Morgan St. It appeared that the Durango struck two poles before flipping and the officer did not observe any skid marks on the street.

Police found the keys in the ignition and air bags deployed, but could not locate the driver. While officers were gathering evidence at the scene, the license plate was traced to Gregory A. Williams with an address on Jefferson St., Knightstown. Apparently the suspect had moved and with the help of Deputy Chris Hanson of the Henry Co. Sheriff’s Dept. and Brian Pryor of the Shirley Police Dept., Williams was located at his residence on the Greensboro Pike. He had visible head, face injuries and a bloody nose. At first he denied being in an accident but finally admitted that it was his truck on Morgan St.

He was taken to the Knightstown Police Dept. where officers collected more evidence and then released at his home. Charges are pending. The vehicle was removed from the driveway by True’s Towing.

On April 8, KPD Officer Derek Hall was on patrol on S.R. 109 when he observed a vehicle in front of him without a visible license plate. Hall stopped the car at the intersection of 109 and Morgan St. While speaking to the driver identified as Christopher Davenport of Avon, he noticed that his driver’s license had expired. The vehicle was impounded to True’s Towing and the driver released with a citation.

An accident was investigated by KPD Officer Derek Hall on March 31 on S.R. 3. Angela Flanders of Anderson told police that she was northbound on S.R. 3 when she came to the intersection. She proceeded north across U.S. 40 and struck a car in the right rear fender driven by Mark T. Dawson of Knightstown. Damage was minimal to Dawson’s vehicle but Flanders vehicle had to be towed by AK Towing in Spiceland.

A minor accident was investigated by Officer Derek Hall in the Dollar General parking lot on April 8. According to the officer, damages to the vehicles driven by Sheila Olivo of Raysville and Pamela A. Elliott of Knightstown appeared to be less than $1,000. Those involved exchanged information for the police report.

Robert Jones of Knightstown reported to police that he struck a deer while traveling westbound on U.S. 40 April 7. He told Officer Joe Radcliff he was westbound on U.S. 40 when the deer ran out in front of him and he was unable to miss the deer. Damages were estimated at $2,500 to Jones’ 2001 Chevy S10.
