2 treated after minivan-vs-car collision

From Local Sources

JASPER — Two people were treated for complaints of pain after a minivan-versus-passenger car collision Monday afternoon at 16th and Newton streets.

Cody W. Williams, 43, Huntingburg, was northbound on Newton Street in a 2006 Nissan Altima at the time of the 3:18 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.

Police said there had been an accident in the southbound lane of Newton Street and a vehicle in front of Williams had stopped to attempt to flag down a Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy. When Williams stopped, police said, his car was rear-ended by a 2006 Honda Odyssey driven by Elizabeth F. Broshears, 30, Jasper.

Williams complained of back pain and a passenger in the car, Kathy Kuebler, 65, also of Huntingburg, complained of back and neck pain, according to police. A Memorial Hospital spokeswoman said both were treated and released.

Damage was estimated at $5,000 to the Williams Nissan and $4,000 to the Broshears Honda.

An officer cited Broshears for following too closely and failure to maintain financial responsibility.

The sheriff’s department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
