JASPER — An attempt at a last-second lane change Friday afternoon left three vehicles damaged at Ninth and Newton streets.
Randy Herzog, 54, Jasper, was northbound in Newton Street’s left lane in a 2002 Ford when the 4:45 p.m. accident occurred between Eighth and Ninth streets, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said Herzog recognized that a 2016 Hyundai in front of him that was being driven by Tammie Butler, 50, Loogootee, was stopped in traffic. He also realized he was going to be unable to avoid a collision, police reported.
Herzog attempted to veer into Newton Street’s right lane to avoid a collision and his Ford sideswiped a 2005 Chevrolet driven by Cody Englert, 26, Jasper, police said. The Englert Chevrolet had been next to the Herzog Ford, northbound in the right lane.
After Herzog’s vehicle sideswiped the Englert Chevrolet, police said, it rear-ended the Butler Hyundai.
No injuries were reported and damage was estimated at $1,000 to the Herzog Ford and $500 each to the Englert Chevrolet and Butler Hyundai.
