Car strikes pedestrian in downtown Noblesville


A motor vehicle accident before noon today has sent one pedestrian to an Indianapolis hospital.

At 11:17 a.m. Oct. 10, Noblesville police officers responded to the intersection of Eighth and Logan streets as a result of a car crash involving a pedestrian.

According to witness statements and evidence at the scene, officials said preliminary information suggests that a 2007 Ford Freestyle was traveling northbound on Eighth Street and was attempting to turn westbound onto Logan Street when the crash occurred. Witnesses said that just prior to the crash, a Curtis T. Jones, 37, of Brownsburg was walking northbound across Logan when he was struck. Police said Jones was walking within the boundaries and had the signal to cross at the time of the crash.

As a result of the crash, Jones was transported by ambulance to I.U. Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Police said his condition was unknown at this time.

The driver, Zoe L. Marks, 80, of Noblesville, did not sustain any injuries and the other passenger in the vehicle also was uninjured.

The intersection of Eight and Logan was closed for approximately 90 minutes while information was gathered and witnesses were interviewed by Accident Reconstruction Unit member. Police officials said it does not appear that alcohol or weather was a factor in the accident.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact accident investigator Sgt. Matt McGovern at 773-1300.
