JASPER — One person complained of pain and damage topped $13,000 in a two-car collision Saturday night at Sixth and McCrillus streets.
Nicholas M. Gagnon, 19, of 21 Canterbury Court, was northbound on McCrillus Street in a 2013 Dodge Avenger at the time of the 11:05 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said Gagnon disregarded the stop sign at Sixth Street and his car struck an eastbound 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Billy D. McKinney Jr, 21, of French Lick.
One of three passengers in the Gagnon vehicle complained of chest pain from a seat belt tightening but all of the passengers declined medical treatment, police said. Two passengers in the McKinney vehicle also declined to be transported by ambulance.
Damage was estimated at $10,000 to the Gagnon Dodge and $3,500 to McKinney’s Pontiac.
Police cited Gagnon for disregarding a stop sign.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department and a Sternberg Chrysler Center wrecker assisted.
