Accident

JASPER — One motorist was ticketed after a pickup truck and a car collided Friday afternoon at 16th and Newton streets.

Jacob A. King, 17, of 6698 N. Portersville Road, was southbound on Newton Street in a 2003 Hyundai passenger car at the time of the 2:59 p.m. incident, according to Jasper police.

Authorities said King saw traffic ahead of him stopped for a red traffic signal and was able to appropriately stop on the wet roadway. When he did, his car was rear-ended by a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by 20-year-old Ethan K. Kuebler, of 2505 Alois Court.

Kuebler told police King had made an abrupt stop. He also said he attempted to veer out of his lane in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid a collision.

Police cited Kuebler for following too closely.

Damage was estimated at $3,500 to King’s Hyundai and $2,000 to Kuebler’s Chevrolet.
