Tribune staff reports

A Seymour woman was arrested Monday after she was involved in a wreck with an ambulance on the city’s east side.

No one was injured in the crash that led to the arrest of Jennifer Ann Slone, 44, on a Jackson Superior Court I warrant for driving while suspended and a new preliminary charge of driving while suspended with a prior conviction.

The incident reported at Tipton Street and Jackson Park Drive did little to no damage to the Jackson County Emergency Medical Services ambulance, Dennis Brasher said.

“You can’t even tell she hit it,” said Brasher, executive director of Jackson County EMS.

He said there was a patient on board at the time of the wreck, but that person was not injured. Sgt. Jack Swindell and officers Gilbert Carpenter and Bart Bevers responded to the wreck.

Police were told the ambulance had been sitting and waiting for the stoplight to change when it was rear-ended by a car.

The driver of the car, identified as Slone, said she had been unable to stop and struck the ambulance.

During the investigation, Carpenter learned Slone had the active warrant for her arrest, and she had been operating on a suspended license.

Slone, who was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 8:19 a.m. Monday, also is being held on a Jennings Superior Court warrant for driving while suspended with a prior conviction and false informing. Her bond on the Jackson County charge was $705.
