Sullivan County – The Indiana State Police reports that it is investigating an accident that occurred on March 1, 2020, on US 41 near County Road 1100 North, which sent a Sullivan, Indiana, man to jail.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Gerald Stump of the Putnamville State Police Post indicates at approximately 4:22 p.m., a 2004 Oldsmobile SUV, driven by Timothy E. Stone, 36, of Sullivan Indiana, was traveling northbound on US 41 near County Road 1100 North at a high rate of speed, when he was slowed due to two vehicles traveling on US 41 side by side. 

Stoned Stone was taking his half out of the middle!

Stone attempted to travel between the two vehicles, striking the vehicle in the driving lane, driven by Jasvir S. Sadra, age 54, of Shelburn, Indiana.  Sadra was driving a 2016 Toyota pickup truck.  Sadra’s pickup was forced off of the roadway traveling south into a parking lot, rolling over, and coming to rest on its rooftop.  Stone’s vehicle then traveled to the northside of US 41 into the grassy median, rolling over on its top, and catching fire.  

Police say that during the course of the investigation, Stone showed signs of impairment.  Stone submitted to a certified chemical test and results showed he was under the influence of marijuana and amphetamines.  Stone was taken into custody and transported to the Sullivan County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
