Entry Description

Knox County – Monday morning, October 22, at 8:05, Indiana State Police and numerous other emergency personnel responded to the Technology Building on the Vincennes University Campus after a driver lost control of his SUV and drove through a classroom wall injuring a student.  The Technology Building is located at 1200 North Chestnut Street.

Preliminary investigation revealed Damon Jones, 34, of Vincennes, was driving his 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe northeast on Chestnut Street when he suffered a seizure.  Jones’ vehicle left the roadway and traveled approximately 225 feet before striking a utility pole at Chestnut Street and Indianapolis Street.  The impact with the utility police caused a major power outage on campus.  The vehicle continued out of control for an additional 405 feet before colliding into the southwest corner of the Technology Building.  The vehicle drove through the wall and traveled approximately 20 feet before coming to a final rest in a classroom occupying approximately 15 students.  A 23-year-old male student from Bloomington was slightly injured when a table was pushed into his back.  The student was treated and released from Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes.  Jones was also taken to Good Samaritan Hospital where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is continuing.
