    Brownsburg police and Hendricks County drug investigators have served a search warrant on the home of one of the teenagers who survived a fatal crash last weekend.

    As reported by Diana Penner in today’s edition of the Indianapolis Star, The Hendricks County United Drug Task Force joined Brownsburg police to serve the warrant Monday at the Pittsboro home of Sean Bloomquist, who remains in critical condition at St. Vincent Hospital.

    The 18-year-old Tri West High School student was one of five teenagers traveling in a Pontiac Grand Am when it slammed into a tree early Saturday in the 6900 block of County Road 550 East near West Chase Golf Course, northwest of Brownsburg.

    Nathan Gentry, an 18-year-old Brownsburg High School student, was killed in the crash.

    Police said the driver, 17 year old Christopher Hubbard sustained a fractured hip, punctured lung and cracked sternum and 16 year old Taylor LaMonte suffered a dislocated knee and broken leg, hip, pelvis and arms. Both from Brownsburg High School, the two initially were listed in stable condition at Wishard Memorial Hospital on Sunday, police said. The hospital later declined to give updates about their condition because they’re minors.

    The fifth teenager, 16 year old Ian Cherco also from Tri-West High School, was released from the hospital Sunday.

    According to a news release from Brownsburg police Tuesday, the search warrant was obtained to look for and seize any marijuana, paraphernalia and illegal drugs found at the residence.

    Brownsburg Police Sgt. Jennifer Pyatt-Barrett said in the news release that evidence was seized at the home, but that investigators were not revealing the specifics while the case remained under investigation.

    The results of toxicology tests performed are not expected to be complete for 10-14 days, she said in the release. After those results are in, the case will be forwarded to the Hendricks County prosecutor’s office, where any decision on possible charges would be made.

    Brownsburg investigators early on suspected marijuana and alcohol contributed to the crash.
