Shelbyville Man Killed in Crash Near Edinburgh

Bartholomew County-Yesterday evening, at approximately 9:30 pm, the Indiana State Police began investigating a two vehicle crash that occurred in northern Bartholomew County that claimed the life of a Shelbyville, Indiana man. The initial investigation by Trp. Korry Clark, Indiana State Police-Versailles Crash Reconstruction Team, indicated that a 2003 Honda Accord being driven by Evan Stewart, age 27, Shelbyville, Indiana was traveling eastbound on County Road 1000 North near Base Road. For an unknown reason, Stewart’s vehicle left the roadway before striking a concrete barrier. The vehicle then overturned before coming to rest in the roadway. Evidence at the scene indicates that Stewart exited the vehicle and was standing in the roadway near his vehicle when he was struck by an eastbound 2002 Chevrolet truck being driven by Andrew Adams, age 25, Columbus, Indiana. Adams vehicle also struck Stewart’s vehicle that was stationary in the roadway. Stewart sustained fatal injuries in the second collision. He was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Bartholomew County Coroner’s Office. Adams was not injured in the collision. A third vehicle was reportedly at the scene when the second crash occurred although the occupants of that vehicle left the scene prior to being identified. The Indiana State Police would like to speak to the occupants of that vehicle. Anyone with information about this crash is urged to call the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post at (812)689-5000. Toxicology tests on both Stewart and Adams are pending at this time. Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in both crashes.

Scott County Drug-Free Communities Support Program Announces New Leadership Roles

SCOTTSBURG, Ind.—Now in "Year 3" of the grant, Scott County is one of 731 U.S. communities who has the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program funding from National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The DFC grant provides funding to involve and engage the local community through the local coalition (CEASe) in preventing substance use among youth.  The DFC Program recently implemented a change in its leadership structure.  As of October 1, 2018, Jamie Raichel has transitioned out of the full-time DFC Coordinator role into the part-time position of DFC Reporting & Compliance Manager. Lori Croasdell has transitioned out of a part-time DFC role, into the full-time position of DFC Coordinator. Melinda Lowry will take on part-time responsibilities as the DFC Youth Coordinator.  Croasdell, also the CEASe Coordinator, believes her role as the DFC Coordinator, will be to continue the processes begun by Raichel (former DFC Coordinator) as she facilitates and strengthens community collaborations in reducing youth substance use/misuse. Croasdell is inspired to build upon the framework started by Raichel as she guides CEASe in moving its 12-month plan toward action and implementation of its creative coalition-driven solutions to bring about a drug-free community. Her vision for Scott County is that every sector of the community works together, building on the foundation of progress currently in place, to create a more comprehensive continuum of community-level change where our citizens have hope to live healthy and whole lives. Melinda Lowry, the new DFC Youth Coordinator, will provide youth and school-based prevention coordination services focused on supporting the implementation of the DFC goals and objectives, as well as expand and strengthen Scott County's EMPOWER Youth Coalition.  As the DFC Youth Coordinator, Melinda will expand EMPOWER's leadership training and coalition-building activities, guide youth members through the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) implementation process, and educate and keep the members engaged in the SPF process and coalition activities.  In her new role as the DFC Reporting & Compliance Manager, Jamie Raichel will support the successful implementation and achievement of the goals and objectives of the DFC by compiling and submitting all required documents, reports, re-applications, and data and evaluation information. She will also provide on-going technical support to promote the goals and objectives of the coalition.
For more information on CEASe and the Scott County Drug Free Communities Support Program, you may contact Lori Croasdell at lcroasdell@me.com or call/text her at (812) 820-0620.
