JASPER — A Huntingburg man was transported to be checked after a car-versus-motor scooter collision Wednesday morning at U.S. 231 and Second Street.
Dana Wood, 24, Petersburg, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta at the time at the 7:50 a.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
After watching a vehicle clear the intersection, police said, Wood began a left turn onto Second Street, failing to see the 2008 ROK scooter being operated by 34-year-old Nicholas Hernandez of Huntingburg.
Police said the Hernandez scooter, which had the right of way, struck the rear of the Jetta.
Hernandez, who complained of right leg and knee pain, was transported by ambulance for evaluation at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Wood was not injured.
Police said the scooter was a total loss and the Jetta sustained damage to a rear, passenger-side door.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker assisted.
