JASPER — Two people complained of pain Tuesday morning after a car and a Jeep Wrangler collided at U.S. 231 and State Road 162.
Jerry R. Carter, 76, of Petersburg was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2009 Pontiac G6 at the time of the 10:32 a.m. accident, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Carter attempted to turn east onto State Road 162 but pulled into the path of a northbound 2000 Jeep Wrangler driven by 24-year-old Anna T. Steckler of 410 E. Fourth St., Huntingburg.
Police said the Jeep attempted to swerve but the vehicles still collided in the intersection.
Steckler complained of neck pain and a passenger in Carter’s Pontiac, 75-year-old Mary Carter of the same Petersburg address, complained of chest pain. Both declined to be transported from the scene by ambulance, police said.
Damage was estimated at $9,000 to Carter’s Pontiac and $4,500 to Steckler’s Jeep.
Police cited Carter for failing to yield the right of way.
