Jeremy Carroll Arrested on Warrant Issued for Fatal Vehicle Crash

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson announced that Elizabeth resident Jeremy D. Carroll, 31, was served with a warrant and arrested early on July 30, 2010 in a case involving a fatal multi-vehicle crash that occurred on April 15, 2010 on State Road 111 South near Five Mile Lane in Floyd County.

Carroll was charged with a ten count information for the death of Nicholle Cain of New Albany and injuries to four other victims.

Charges include two Class B felonies for Causing Death When Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Schedule I or II Controlled Substance in the Blood, which resulted in the death of Nicholle Cain.

Carroll was charged with four Class D felony counts of Causing Serious Bodily Injury When Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Schedule I Controlled Substance in the Body for injuries sustained by David and Melissa Blair of Clarksville, Jacklyn Woods of Elizabeth, and Melinda Moore of Starkville, Mississippi.

In addition, Carroll was charged with Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Endangering a Person, a Class A misdemeanor; Operating a Vehicle With a Schedule I Controlled Substance or its Metabolite in the Body, a Class C misdemeanor; and Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Ever Receiving a License, a Class C misdemeanor. Carroll has also been charged with being a Habitual Substance Offender.

Officer John Meacham, of the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, was the arresting officer who served the warrant. As a member of the Floyd County Combined Accident Reconstruction Team (CART), which investigates all serious and fatal crashes, he signed the Probable Cause Affidavit alleging the charges against Carroll.

The Floyd County CART Team was established two years ago by Prosecutor Henderson to aid in serious motor vehicle accident investigations. CART members include officers from the Indiana State Police, Floyd County Sheriff’s Department, and the New Albany Police Department.

An initial hearing is scheduled for this afternoon at 1:15 pm in Floyd Superior Court 3. The State will be seeking a $100,000 court cash bond.
