A Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputy was injured when the driver of a vehicle being pursued t-boned a deputy’s vehicle, according to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Captain Randy Jacobs.
Greene county contacted Monroe County central dispatch as the pursuit of a two-tone tan over black Chevy Suburban crossed into Monroe County. Monroe County deputies joined the pursuit, and as a deputy was pursuing the vehicle in the parking lot of Walmart on Indiana 45, the driver of the Chevy intentionally t-boned a sheriff’s vehicle.
Here is the text of a release sent to the Bloomingtonian Saturday:
“On 12/3/22 at approx. 1903 hours, Greene County contacted central dispatch to advise their Deputies were in a pursuit on W SR 45 EB. The vehicle was a two-tone tan over black Chevy Suburban. Monroe County deputies joined the pursuit and attempted to get ahead of the chase with stop sticks but were unsuccessful.
The suspect vehicle turned into the Wal-Mart parking lot and continued near the Tire and Lube. It went behind the conex storage boxes then turned east towards the building. As Sgt. Brooks was driving with emergency lights and siren activated south in the driving lane, the vehicle right angle collided with Sgt.
