Steve Wagner

Deputy Jake Lewis of the Greenfield Police Department was injured on Friday, May 17th when he was assisting a woman with mechanical issues on her vehicle. Lewis and the woman, Jenny Tapp of Columbus, IN, were both struck by an oncoming vehicle and suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that caused the accident, 72-year-old Lorilee Curry, resident of Franklin, IN, is believed to have fallen asleep behind the wheel and swerved across the median at County Road 400 and U.S. 40 where her car struck the other vehicles and injured the Deputy and Tapp.

All three people suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Methodist Hospital-IU. No word has been released on whether charges will be filed against Curry.
