From Local Sources
JASPER — Police ticketed a motorist after a passenger-car-versus-SUV collision late Monday morning at Eighth and Jackson streets.
Andrea O’Brien, 53, Jasper, was southbound on Jackson Street in a 2008 Toyota Highlander at the time of the 11:24 a.m. mishap, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said O’Brien’s Highlander collided with the front passenger fender of a westbound 2002 Chevrolet Camaro that had started into the intersection.
Michael Olson, 39, Jasper, who was driving the Camaro, told police he stopped at the intersection and looked; however, he failed to see the approaching SUV.
O’Brien said she had little time to react. She stated she thought about swerving but feared striking something else, according to police.
Damage was estimated at $2,500 to the Olson Camaro and $2,000 to the O’Brien Highlander.
An officer cited Olson for failing to yield the right of way.
