ZPD officer injured in Wednesday night crash

Zionsville Police Department Officer Tom Henthorn was critically injured in a one car crash while on duty Wednesday evening, May 25. 

According to a press release, initial reports showed Henthorn’s 2010 Crown Victoria police cruiser, which was traveling west on County Road 650 South and then continued through the intersection of Ind. 267, hit a barn (and truck inside) at 6490 S. Ind. 267.  First Responders found Henthorn, 28, pinned in the vehicle and unresponsive. Lifeline was called to the scene but later canceled due to weather.  

The almost five-year veteran of the Zionsville Police Department had to be extricated from his squad car, which took approximately 1 hour due to the severe impact of the crash.

Henthorn was transported to Methodist Hospital in critical condition, although Thursday morning, May 26, Zionsville Police Chief Rick Dowden said he was listed in stable condition undergoing surgery at 2 a.m. Thursday morning.

“Learning of an officer involved crash is always a grave concern to our brothers and sisters in public safety,” said  Boone County Sheriff Ken Campbell. “We are pleased that Tom was not more severely injured. We continue to offer our prayers to Tom, his family and Zionsville Police. Our Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash.”

. The cause of the crash is still under investigation. A BCSO reconstructionist was called to the scene.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office was assisted by: Whitestown Police Department, Zionsville Police Department, Lebanon Police Department, Whitestown Fire Department, Zionsville Fire Department, Perry Fire Department, Indiana State Police and Witham Medics.
