JASPER — Five people were injured in a Tuesday evening accident on North Newton Street south of 30th Street/Northwood Avenue.
Megan Richer, 36, Loogootee, and her passengers Joan Rohder and three juveniles went to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center with minor injuries, Jasper Police reported.
Police were called to the four-car accident, which happened on Newton in front of the Dubois County Museum, at approximately 7 p.m. Upon investigation, police determined that Jose Paredes Tobar, 24, Jasper, was driving north in a 2007 Chevy Silverado and was followed by a 2018 Jeep Wrangler driven by Wendy Colglazier, 61, Springfield, and Richer’s 2003 GMC Yukon. All three had stopped in traffic.
Another driver, Sean Marek, 42, Elnora, was following too closely behind them and was unable to come to a stop, police said. Marek’s vehicle hit the rear of Richer’s vehicle, causing it to hit Colglazier’s vehicle; Colglazier’s vehicle then hit the rear of Tobar’s vehicle, police reported.
The accident totaled Richer’s Yukon and caused $10,000 in damages each to Marek’s Sierra and Colglazier’s 2018 Jeep Wrangler and $5,000 in damages to Tobar’s Silverado. North Newton Street was shut down for about 30 minutes, police said. Marek was cited for following too closely.
