JASPER — A Tuesday afternoon accident at the intersection of Second and South Newton Street injured a passenger and caused extensive damage to both vehicles involved.
The female passenger complained of knee pain, but Jasper Police did not identify her or state in the report if the female received treatment.
The female was the passenger in a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country driven by Jerry Merkley, 80 of Jasper. Merkley was driving on South Newton Street at 4 p.m. while Daron Pellerin, 38, of Rucker, Georgia was in his 2016 Toyota Tacoma on Second Street.
Police reported that Pellerin did not yield the right of way to Merkley and drove onto South Newton. Pellerin’s vehicle struck Merkley’s vehicle.
Both vehicles sustained $5,000 in damages and were disabled, police said. Pellerin was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
Jasper Police were assisted at the scene by Uebelhor’s Towing Service.
