JASPER — Police ticketed a driver after a Sunday afternoon rear-end collision on Jasper’s north side.
Hannah J. Savka, 30, Fishers, was northbound on Newton Street in a 2017 Nissan Rogue when the 12:47 p.m. mishap occurred at 36th Street, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Savka stopped in traffic and, when she did, her Nissan was rear-ended by a 2004 Ford Focus driven by Ashley D. Sowder, 31, Jasper, police said.
Sowder told an officer that she attempted to stop after noticing the stopped traffic, but her car slid on the wet roadway.
Damage was estimated at $5,000 to each vehicle.
An officer cited Sowder for speed too fast to avoid a collision.
