[ISP] Early Morning Crash leads to Two Arrests
Start Date: 2/16/2012
End Date: 2/16/2012
Entry Description

Gibson County – Early Thursday morning, February 16, at approximately 1:45 a.m., Indiana State Police and Gibson County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash with injuries on C.R. 1025 South approximately 1/8 west of U.S. 41 near Tri-State Speedway. 

When emergency personnel arrived they found a 2011 Chevrolet passenger car had left the roadway and struck a telephone pole, but no one was around the vehicle. While searching the area, Trooper Paul Stolz found Danny Joe Gatewood, 28, and Christina Pegram, 22, both from Patoka, hiding in a ditch approximately ¼ mile west of the crash.  “I could smell the strong odor of alcohol on both of them and their balance was impaired,” said Trooper Stolz. 

Further investigation revealed Gatewood was driving eastbound on C.R. 1025 South near the race track when he left the roadway and struck the telephone pole totaling the vehicle. Gatewood and Pegram, who was a passenger in the vehicle, then fled the crash site before emergency personnel arrived.  Gatewood and Pegram were not injured.  They were both arrested and taken to the Gibson County Jail where they are currently being held on bond.  While being booked-in at the jail, Gatewood became uncooperative and resisted officers and jail personnel.
