From Local Sources
FERDINAND — One motorist was transported to be checked for complaints of pain after a passenger-car-versus-pickup-truck collision Tuesday afternoon at State Road 162 and 23rd Street.
Emily Gogel, 24, Ferdinand, was eastbound on 23rd Street in a 2015 Toyota Corolla at the time of the 3:19 p.m. accident, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Gogel attempted to cross State Road 162 to continue east but did not see a northbound 2013 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Virginia Shelton, 66, English, according to police.
The front of the Gogel Toyota struck the front, driver-side tire area of the Shelton Silverado, police said. The Gogel Corolla then spun and the two vehicles hit together again, both on their rear passenger sides.
Gogel complained of chest and shoulder pain and was transported to be checked at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, according to police. A hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.
Shelton declined treatment at the scene, police reported.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
The Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department, a Berg’s Garage wrecker and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
