From Local Sources
IRELAND — One driver was taken to be evaluated after a four-vehicle collision last week on Ireland’s west wide.
The 9:09 a.m. accident Wednesday, Sept. 11, involved eastbound vehicles on State Road 56, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office. Witnesses said it began when an unknown, small black car stopped suddenly to turn onto Walnut Street.
The vehicles following behind the black automobile reacted, slowed and tried to stop but a 2015 Ford Escort driven by Brandon T. Conard, 16, Jasper, did not stop in time, according to a deputy. It struck the trailer hitch of a 2015 GMC Sierra driven by William L. Spurr III, 36, Washington.
A vehicle behind Conard, a 2006 Land Rover driven by Patrick C. Harmon, 17, Jasper, ran into the rear of the Conard Escort.
A deputy said there was air bag deployment in the Land Rover, which stopped in a ditch on the south side of the highway.
Police said Harmon was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center to be evaluated for injury. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released.
Total damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.
The Spurr Sierra was driven from the scene, according to the sheriff’s office. A Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker towed the Conard Escort and the Harmon Land Rover.
