From Local Sources
JASPER — Police arrested a driver in a Tuesday afternoon crash at Sixth and Newton streets after he left the scene.
Kiersten M. Hasenour, 21, Ferdinand, was southbound on Newton Street and stopped in traffic in a 2013 Chevrolet at the time of the 1:28 p.m. mishap, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police reported Hasenour’s vehicle was rear-ended by a 2005 Honda Pilot driven by Elexey Batista Aguilar, 42, 284 W. 41st St., Jasper.
The impact sent the Hasenour Chevrolet into the rear of a 2009 Ford Fusion driven by Marlene M. Houston, 77, Chrisney.
Batista Aguilar is alleged to have left the scene but not before someone involved in the accident got his license plate number. Police later located the damaged Honda Pilot at Batista Aguilar’s place of employment just west of Huntingburg.
Authorities booked Batista Aguilar into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:54 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of leaving the scene of a property damage accident and driving while suspended (prior). He was also cited for following too closely.
Batista Aguilar posted bond later Tuesday afternoon.
