From Local Sources
JASPER — Police anticipate referring a juvenile for possible charges following an injury accident late Monday afternoon at 14th and Main streets.
Debbie Chasteen, 23, Jasper, was northbound on Main Street in a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado at the time of the 5:30 p.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police reported a 16-year-old juvenile female who was eastbound on 14th Street in a 2004 Toyota Corolla proceeded through the intersection into the path of the Chasteen truck.
The Silverado struck the front passenger side bumper of the Toyota.
The juvenile allegedly told police she had stopped at Main Street but did not see the northbound truck.
Police said Chasteen was exiting her vehicle when officers arrived and she fainted, falling to the ground. She was treated for a complaint of neck pain and transported to Memorial Hospital, according to police.
The juvenile allegedly advised police she had been the passenger and not the driver of the Corolla. Police reported she eventually admitted to being the driver. The juvenile had also advised she was licensed; however, after further investigation, she was found to be unlicensed, police reported.
The juvenile will be referred to authorities for false informing and driving while having never been licensed, police reported. She was also cited for failure to yield the right of way.
A Bob Luegers Motors wrecker assisted by towing the Toyota. The Chasteen truck was able to be driven from the scene.
