From Local Sources

JASPER — Total damage in a Sunday evening pickup-truck-versus-minivan collision topped $15,000, according to police.

Mario Ramos, 42, Huntingburg, was eastbound on Division Road in a 2015 Toyota Sienna when the 7:03 p.m. accident occurred near Kuper Lane, according to the Jasper Police Department.

Police said the Ramos minivan was rear-ended by a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado driven by David Uebelhor, 17, Jasper.

Jasper police said Uebelhor was distracted and failed to notice the Ramos vehicle driving at a slower speed.

There were six occupants in the Ramos Toyota, but all vehicle occupants were properly restrained and there were no injuries, police said.

Police estimated damage at $12,000 to the rear of the Ramos Toyota and $4,000 to the front of the Uebelhor truck.

An officer cited Uebelhor for speed too fast to avoid a collision.
