From Local Sources
JASPER — Total damage topped $10,000 in a three-vehicle collision Wednesday afternoon on U.S. 231 near Indiana Street.
David R. Phillips, 41, Jasper, was northbound on U.S. 231 in a 2004 Honda CR-V at the time of the 3:24 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Phillips stopped in traffic that was backed up from the traffic light at U.S. 231 and Second Street.
Police said the Phillips Honda was rear-ended by a 2016 Kia Optima driven by Harrison M. Wilson, 21, of Princeton.
Wilson told police his attention was distracted from the roadway and he failed to see the stopped vehicle.
The initial impact pushed the Phillips Honda into the rear of a 2017 Toyota Yaris driven by Edwin R. Chandler, 67, of Huntingburg.
Police estimated damage at $8,000 to the Wilson Kia, $1,200 to the Phillips Honda and $1,000 to the Chandler Toyota.
An officer cited Wilson for following too closely.
