JASPER — One of the drivers was injured in a three-vehicle collision Wednesday morning at Ninth and Newton streets.
Mitchell Emmons, 54, of 9413 N. Hillham Road, French Lick, was southbound on Newton Street in a 2003 Chevrolet 1500 series pickup truck at the time of the 8:58 a.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Emmons stopped for the intersection’s traffic signal and, when he did, his truck was rear-ended by a 2011 GMC Acadia driven by Trisha Eichmiller, 35, of 9152 N. Hillham Road, French Lick, according to police.
Authorities said the impact sent Emmons’ truck into the rear of a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Brandon Evans, 32, of French Lick.
Evans complained of neck and back pain and was transported for treatment by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper, according to police. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released. Eichmiller and Emmons were not injured.
Damage was estimated at $7,000 to Eichmiller’s SUV, $5,000 to Emmons’ pickup truck and $1,500 to Evans’ Silverado.
Police cited Eichmiller for speed to fast to avoid a collision.
An Indiana State Police trooper and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
