From Local Sources

JASPER — One driver complained of pain after a three-vehicle accident late Wednesday morning on Newton Street near Schuetter Road.

Michael Suits, 68, Jasper, was northbound on Newton Street in a 2019 Honda Pilot at the time of the 11:20 a.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.

Suits stopped for traffic and, when he did, his Honda was rear-ended by a 2008 Chevrolet Impala driven by Kenwyn Zehr, 48, Huntingburg, according to police.

The collision caused the Suits Honda to jump forward and collide with a trailer being pulled by a 2011 Dodge Ram driven by Terrance Tindall, 34, Indianapolis, according to police.

Zehr complained of neck pain and was transported by ambulance for treatment at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. A hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.

Police cited Zehr for following too closely. Her car was towed because of disabling damage.

An officer estimated damage at $3,000 to the Zehr Chevrolet and $2,000 to the Suits Honda. The Tindall trailer did not appear to have been damaged.
