JASPER — Four people were transported by ambulance after a four-vehicle accident Monday afternoon at 32nd and Newton streets.
Douglas E. Miller, 38, of 320 E. Fourth St., Huntingburg, was northbound on Newton Street in a 1998 Dodge Stratus at the time of the 12:59 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Miller slowed for stopped traffic and, when he did, his car was rear-ended by a 2008 Ford F-550 driven by Jeffrey L. Verkamp, 24, of 1714 S. Celestine Road South, Schnellville, police said.
The impact of the collision sent Miller’s Dodge into the rear of a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu driven by 37-year-old Ana Kell, of 812 Giesler Road. That collision in turn sent Kell’s car into the rear of a 2010 Ford Focus driven by 66-year-old Patricia Haste of French Lick.
Miller and three passengers in his car, Hunter Bryant, P.J. Brant and Patricia Heowener, whose ages and addresses were not immediately available from police, complained of back pain and were transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper, police said.
Damage was estimated at $5,000 to Miller’s Dodge, $4,500 to Kell’s Chevrolet, $3,000 to Verkamp’s Ford and $2,000 to Haste’s Focus.
Police cited Verkamp for speed too fast to avoid a collision.
