From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Two individuals went to the hospital to be checked after a minivan-versus-passenger car collision Tuesday afternoon.
Marvin Walters, Huntingburg, was southbound on Main Street in a Chrysler Town & County minivan when the 4:08 p.m. accident occurred at First Street, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
Police said a juvenile who was driving eastbound in a Toyota Corolla proceeded through the Main Street intersection, causing a collision.
The juvenile allegedly told police she thought Walters was turning onto First Street. Walters said he was signaling to turn into the nearby Dollar General store off Main Street.
Police said the juvenile’s mother later transported the motorist to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. A passenger in the Walters vehicle, Katherine Sears, 78, Huntingburg, complained of back pain and was transported to the hospital by ambulance. A hospital spokeswoman said Sears was treated and released.
The vehicles were towed by wreckers from KARS and Uebelhor & Sons.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
