Abandoned and crashed pickup found in Johnson County

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a crash that took place Wednesday morning on County Road 100 North.

Sheriff Doug Cox says that when a deputy investigated the scene, he found the pickup truck sitting in a drainage ditch with a cracked driver’s side window. The deputy could not find a driver, but he did report the odor of alcohol coming from inside the truck. While taking inventory of the vehicle’s contents before having it towed, deputies reportedly found a binder that contained a small bag of marijuana.

Investigators say that the pickup likely went off the road at the intersection of County Road 700 East and County Road 100 North. It then likely travelled northwest before ultimately striking, and coming to rest inside, of the drainage ditch.

Sheriff Cox says that the vehicle is registered to a resident of Nashville, IN. He says that investigators will be speaking with him soon, as this investigation is ongoing.
