Multi-Agency Investigation Into Reported Stolen Vehicle, Crash Scene

January 12, 2015 - Several agencies are involved in an investigation stemming from events on late Friday, January 9, and early Saturday, January 10, 2015 relating to the possible theft of at least one vehicle and a wreck involving another.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) State Trooper Keith Jones was dispatched to a single-vehicle crash at 8am on Saturday, January 10, 2015 on State Highway 87 South one mile north of Shelbyville at Red Rock Construction.

A green 1998 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 registered to Jonathan Greer of Warren, Texas was traveling southbound on 87 South when the truck left the roadway to the right and the driver over corrected left. The truck traveled across the northbound traffic lane and then over an embankment where it traveled through a barbed wire fence. The truck then continued down the other side of the embankment where it rolled over two diesel tanks and into two large air compressors before coming to rest on its wheels.

When an employee with the company arrived at the scene he located the crash and no driver could be found. Another vehicle in the area of the crash was believed to have been stolen and was later located by Shelby County Sheriff's Deputy Cody Muse at a residence at the end of Spring Branch Road in Center on Friday night.

Officers with the Center Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff's Department interviewed residents at the house on Spring Branch Road following the discovery of the crash scene on 87 South. At this time the Texas Department of Public Safety, Center Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff's Department are continuing to investigate these incidents which appear to law enforcement to somehow be connected.
