[ISP] Pursuit Ends in Crash; Four Injured
Start Date: 1/5/2012
End Date: 1/5/2012
Entry Description

Connersville – Today around 12:46 p.m. troopers from the Pendleton Post were requested by Connersville Police at a crash scene in Connersville at 30th St. and Park Rd. A pickup that was being pursued by numerous Fayette County Law Enforcement agencies had crashed into two vehicles at that location.

Pendleton Post Troopers, including those trained in Crash Reconstruction responded, and in their preliminary investigation, say that a red 1992 Chevrolet S10 pickup, driven by Ryan Foster, age 26, of Dublin, was east bound on 30th St. at a high rate of speed when the truck failed to yield, running the red light at 30th and Park Road.  The pickup struck a south bound gray 1989 Cadillac, driven by Robert Earl Lewis, age 53, of Connersville, in the passenger door.

Both vehicles continued east into the north bound lanes of Park Rd. and struck a north bound tan 2000 Chevrolet Venture van driven by Stephen J. Laboyteaux, age 25, of Connersville.  Two passengers in the van, an adult and a small child, were transported, treated and later released with minor injuries.

Foster and the driver of the Cadillac, Robert E. Lewis, were both injured and transported to Fayette Regional Health Systems Hospital.  Mr. Lewis was later transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with head injuries. Foster was treated and released to the custody of the Fayette County Sheriff.   Stephen Laboyteaux, the driver of the Chevrolet Venture Van, was not injured.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.  Further questions reference the pursuit need to be referred to the Connersville Police Department and the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.  The Indiana State Police are only investigating the crash scene.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
