JASPER — One driver complained of pain after an SUV-versus-pickup truck accident Wednesday afternoon at 36th and Newton streets.
Ronald Walls, 62, of Loogootee was northbound on Newton Street in a 1996 Ford Ranger pickup truck at the time of the 2:21 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said Walls stopped in traffic for a red light and, when he did, his truck was rear-ended by a 1998 Jeep Cherokee driven by 24-year-old Sara Mayhew of Paoli.
Mayhew told police she was looking at gauges on her vehicle’s dash and failed to see Walls’ stopped vehicle in time to avoid a collision.
Walls complained of pain after the accident but did not require transport by ambulance for medical attention, according to police.
Damage was estimated at $500 to each of the vehicles.
Police cited Mayhew for following too closely.
