   Deputy Jacob Calvin was killed in a single-vehicle accident while responding to another accident.

   Deputy Calvin was responding to the call near State Road 28 and County Road 500 West. He was traveling northbound on County Road 300 West near County Road 300 South when, for an unknown reason, his squad car veered off the road and rolled several times before coming to rest about 100 yards from the roadway. Deputy Calvin, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time, was ejected from his squad car. He was taken to IU Health Tipton Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

   Deputy Calvin was a US Air Force veteran for six years where he served in Iraq and as a military policeman. He had also served with the Kempton Volunteer Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician. Deputy Calvin is survived by his fiancé, brother, stepsister, stepbrother, parents and grandparents.
