JASPER — Two people complained of pain and two vehicles were totaled in a Tuesday afternoon accident at Sixth and St. Charles streets.
Elizabeth B. Dunn, 23, Jasper, was westbound on Sixth Street in a 1998 GMC Jimmy at the time of the 4:38 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said Dunn stopped at the intersection with St. Charles Street to wait to turn southbound. When the traffic light turned yellow, police said, Dunn continued into the intersection without noticing an eastbound 2007 Chevrolet Impala driven by Carol E. Rivera, 71, Waverly, Kentucky.
Police said the Rivera Chevrolet collided with the Dunn GMC, totaling both vehicles.
Dunn complained of wrist and back pain after the accident while a passenger in the Rivera car, Jorge A. Rivera, 79, also of Waverly, complained of chest, back and shoulder pain.
A hospital spokeswoman said Jorge Rivera was treated and released. There was no additional information immediately available regarding Dunn.
An officer cited Dunn for failing to yield the right of way.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Ruxer Ford wrecker assisted.
