2 injured in west-side Jasper crash

From Local Sources

JASPER — Both drivers complained of pain after a Monday afternoon collision on Jasper’s west side.

Elliot Dilger, 30, Jasper, was westbound on Sixth Street in a 2010 Honda readying to turn south on County Road 350W at the time of the 5 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.

Dilger stopped to turn and, when he did, his Honda was rear-ended by a 2009 Lincoln driven by Ardella Keusch, 78, Jasper, according to police.

The impact pushed the Dilger Honda into a nearby field and both vehicles were totaled, police said.

Dilger complained of neck and knee pain but declined to be transported from the scene, according to police.

Authorities said Keusch suffered a cut to her arm and complained of back and chest pain. She was transported for treatment to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, a Bob Luegers Motors wrecker and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
