HUNTINGBURG — Four people were reported to have gone to Memorial Hospital following a three-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon at 19th and Main streets in Huntingburg.
Jessamyn L. Woolsey, 20, of Greenville, was northbound on Main Street in a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am at the time of the 3:30 p.m. accident, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
Woolsey stopped to make a left turn onto 19th Street and, when she did, her Pontiac was rear-ended by a 2011 GMC Acadia driven by Jill L. Lau, 36, of 1310 N. Chesnut St.
Police said Lau told them she did not see the Woolsey vehicle.
The impact sent Woolsey’s Pontiac skidding to the right where it stopped facing south in the northbound lane.
Lau’s SUV skidded into the southbound lane and collided with a southbound Chevrolet Impala driven by Randall R. Gibson of Loogootee.
Gibson’s Chevrolet stopped just off the roadway in the intersection and Lau’s GMC stopped blocking the southbound lane.
Police said Gibson, Woolsey and a passenger in Woolsey’s car, Martin Munoz, 29, of 657 Village Court, Jasper, all complained of pain and were taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper. Lau was transported to the hospital in a friend’s vehicle.
Total damage was estimated at $26,000 with Woolsey’s Pontiac, which had a paper tag for a license plate, listed as a total loss.
Police cited Lau for following too closely.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department, Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Kars wrecker assisted.
Main Street was closed for about an hour while the scene was cleared.
