IRELAND — One driver was transported for medical attention after a car-versus-pickup accident early Sunday afternoon in Ireland.
Matthew Dick, Jasper, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2000 Toyota Camry when the 12:10 p.m. accident occurred at County Road 500W, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said Dick disregarded a red traffic signal and his car collided in the intersection with a northbound 2007 GMC driven by David Hopf, Jasper. The sheriff’s department said Hopf was proceeding with the green light.
The front of Dick’s Toyota struck the passenger side of the Hopf GMC.
Deputies said Hopf complained of neck pain and was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released.
Dick was not injured and refused treatment at the scene, according to the sheriff’s office.
Damage to the truck was estimated at $2,500. The Toyota was listed as a total loss.
A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed both vehicles.
A deputy cited Dick for disregarding a traffic control device.
The Ireland Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
