Driver suffers seizure; car damages home
A man had a seizure and drove off the road, striking a Center Grove area house, police said.
The accident caused an estimated $25,000 in damage to the home in the 400 block of David Drive, homeowner Brian Ward said.
Francisco Lopez, 47, Greenwood, told police he had a seizure while he was driving Wednesday afternoon and isn’t sure what happened, according to a police report. Lopez was taken to a hospital because of the seizure, but the sheriff’s office did not know if he had any injuries related to the accident.
Ward was inside the house when he heard a loud boom and thought the ceiling of his attached garage had fallen, he said.
Lopez’s car went through the open garage door, hit a wall and smashed a copy machine, TV, bicycles and other items stored in the garage, he said. An official damage estimate from an insurance company wasn’t available yet, he said.
Authorities investigate phony arrest scam
Police are warning residents not to fall for a known scam that conned a woman out of thousands of dollars this week.
The woman called the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office this week after receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be a law enforcement officer, who told the woman her grandson was in jail.
The caller told the woman her grandson would remain jailed in Knightstown until she paid a Drug Enforcement Administration agent in Maryland, according to the report.
After transferring nearly $6,000 the woman contacted her grandson, who told her he had not been arrested, the report said.
The woman gave investigators the phone number the call came from and the address she used to transfer the money, the report said.
