JASPER — No tickets were issued after two SUVs collided Friday afternoon at U.S. 231 and Division Road in an accident that caused about $9,000 in damage.

Louis D. Adams, 73, of Henderson, Ky., was northbound on U.S. 231 in a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer at the time of the 3:16 p.m. mishap, according to the Jasper Police Department.
