JASPER — A Thursday morning accident left a Huntingburg man with side pain and both cars with several thousands of dollars in damage.

Jose M. Artiga Cartagena, Huntingburg, was northbound on Newton Street south of Schuetter Road in a red 2009 Ford. John C. Buechlein, Jasper, was in a white 2013 Chrysler turning around in the Marathon parking lot and attempting to pull back onto Newton Street. Buechlein said he failed to see Cartagena approaching and pulled onto Newton Street and struck his car.

Cartagena complained of side pain but was not transported by emergency medical services to the hospital. Buechlein was uninjured.

Cartagena’s car was estimated to have $6,000 in damages, and Buechlein’s car was estimated to have $8,000.

The Jasper Police Department was assisted by Ruxer’s Wrecker Service.
