Pickups collide at Jasper plant’s exitDecember 14, 2018
From Local Sources
JASPER — Total damage reached $7,000 when two pickup trucks collided Wednesday afternoon outside a south-side manufacturing plant’s exit.
Lonnie Shepard, 65, Shoals, was exiting the Indiana Furniture parking lot at County Road 100S and Kimball Boulevard in a 2017 Toyota Tacoma at the time of the 4:46 p.m. mishap, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Shepard told police he checked traffic both ways and was contending with the setting sun when he started into the intersection.
Police said Shepard drove into the path of a westbound 2001 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Levi Messmer, 32, Jasper.
Messmer attempted to avoid a collision by hard braking and swerving; however, his Chevrolet struck the passenger side of the Shepard Toyota.
Damage was estimated at $3,500 to each truck but there were no injuries.
An officer cited Shepard for failing to yield the right of way.
A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed the Messmer Silverado from the scene, according to police.
