Brownstown man arrested Friday after crashes


A 52-year-old Jackson County man faces criminal charges related to a series of crashes reported Friday night in the 700 block of North County Road 250E.

No one sustained serious injuries in the incidents that led to the arrest of David Greger of Brownstown on two counts of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury, according to a report from Jackson County Officer Rick Meyer.

Meyer said Greger, who also faces charges of operating while intoxicated and blood alcohol content 0.15 percent or greater, was arrested near County Road 25N and County Road 250E.

Greger and his vehicle, which was missing a tire, was located in that area about a half mile from the original crashes, by Brownstown Officer John Long, Meyer said.

That’s where the 2004 Chevrolet Colorado had come to a stop after it was involved in a wrecks with a 2010 Ford Escape driven by Lori Sitterding of Brownstown and a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox driven by Heidi Caffee, 40, of Brownstown.

Caffee was treated at the scene by personnel with Jackson County Emergency Medical Services before being taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour for evaluation, Meyer said.

He said Caffee didn’t sustain serious injuries and he didn’t list any injuries for Sitterding and the three passengers in her vehicle, which sustained minor damage after the driver’s side mirror was struck.

Greger was booked into the Jackson County Jail at 9:09 p.m. Friday night and was being held on $705 bond.
