A late night, one-vehicle accident on Monday, June 13, south of Scottsburg resulted in a local man being taken to Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Deputies Justin Cheatham and Jac Sanders were dispatched to the crash, which happened at 10:17 p.m. on Vienna Road about 800 feet north of State Road 356.

There, they found driver Kurt Heath, 22, suffering from facial contusions and bruising.

Heath said he was driving his 1993 Subaru Impreza north on Vienna Road when he steered the car to the left to follow a curve in the road. The car did not respond. With his steering locked up, Heath was forced to travel straight. He struck a fence, coming to rest on private property.

After hearing Heath's story, deputies inspected the car and discovered a sway bar mount had broken, which led to the steering problem.

Heath's airbag deployed, protecting him from serious injuries, but he agreed with Scott County EMS technicians that he needed to be checked out and was transported by ambulance to the local hospital.

Property damage from the mishap was estimated at up to $2,500.

The alleged robber of the Jendy's Pizza restaurant on the east side of Scottsburg's downtown square entered a preliminary plea of not guilty to the charges filed against him.

Vincent E. Mayo, 29, no address listed, is charged with Level 3 felony robbery and Level 6 felony theft in the incident which occurred late at night on Friday, June 10.

The probable cause affidavit written by Scottsburg Patrolman Shawn Hurt related that he was dispatched to Jendy's regarding an armed robbery.

Employees of the restaurant said two males armed with guns came in the shop's back door. Both had their faces partially obscured by bandanas.

The intruders reportedly told the employees to not move. They said one took a tray out of a register in the rear of the store, and the other man took a small safe and its key. They then ran out the back door.

Though police searched the area, no suspect was located. The tray was found inside the store by employees, noted Ptl. Hurt. Nearly $1,000 in cash had been taken.

Mayo was identified as one of the men by a store employee. He reportedly had once worked at Jendy's. Mayo was overheard telling a jailer that he had turned himself in when he learned he was a suspect in the robbery.

At his court appearance, Mayo respectfully answered Senior Judge Nicholas South's questions, advising he had a job. Judge South set a jury trial for September 27 and Mayo's bail at $50,000 by corporate surety bond or $10,000 cash. A public defender was to be appointed to the case.

Judge South talked with several of Mayo's family members after the suspect was led away. He advised them that they should talk to Mayo's attorney about getting his bail reduced.

Two adults and a 13-year-old boy were listed as injured in three recent crashes that occurred in Scottsburg, Austin and Finley Township.

The first injury accident happened on State Road 56 West (McClain Avenue) at Beechwood Avenue just before 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7.

Tami E. Shouse, 52, Scottsburg, was driving a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and stopped in the left lane of eastbound traffic to attempt a north turn onto the city street.

As she was waiting, Shouse said a motorist stopped in the left lane of westbound traffic motioned her to turn. When she did so, she collided with a 2006 Chevy Trail Blazer driven by Tonya M. Lee, 44, Scottsburg.

Shouse received abrasions to her face in the mishap and was transported to Scott Memorial Hospital by Scott County EMS technicians. Lee was reportedly not injured.

Sgt. Rodney Watts investigated the accident. He was assisted at the scene by Lt./Detective Mike Nichols and Sgt. Brian Hall. The estimate of property damage was listed at up to $25,000 and included a city-owned street sign.

Deputy Joe Guarneri was dispatched to an accident in Austin on Thursday, June 9, that involved that city's police chief, Robert Gudgel. The accident occurred at 3:10 p.m.

Chief Gudgel said he was behind a 2002 Chevy Cavalier in his patrol car, a 2014 Dodge Charger unit, when the Cavalier suddenly stopped in front of him. Driver Patricia A. Sizemore, 56, Austin, said she braked to avoid another vehicle which had abruptly stopped in front of her.

Unfortunately, Chief Gudgel's car hit the back of Sizemore's vehicle. Neither adult was injured, but Sizemore's passenger, 13-year-old Vincent Hall, Austin, suffered a neck abrasion and hit his head. Deputy Guarneri's report related that medical treatment was refused at the scene.

Property damage was estimated at up to $5,000 in that accident.

Just before 6 a.m. on Saturday, June 11, a motorist's encounter with a deer resulted in an injury accident on S.R. 56 800 feet east of Dunny Drive.

Charles R. Bandy, 51, Jeffersonville, was headed east on the state highway when he said a deer appeared in his way. Bandy swerved in his 2008 Mini-Cooper trying to avoid the animal. That action caused Bandy to run off the road and down a steep embankment where the car stopped after hitting a culvert. The impact caused up to $25,000 in damage to the compact car and deployed Bandy's airbag.

Bandy was transported to Scott Memorial by the local ambulance service after saying he was experiencing chest pain.
