Northside Jasper Accident Sends Four To Hospital

A chain reaction crash Monday afternoon on Jasper’s far northside resulted in four people being transported to Memorial Hospital.

Jasper police say a pickup truck driven by 24-year-old Jeffrey Verkamp of rural Schnellville failed to stop for stopped traffic just south of 32nd Street resulting in a chain-reaction accident.  A total of four vehicles were damaged including Verkamp’s pickup.

Verkamp’s pickup struck a car driven by 38-year old Douglas Miller of Huntingburg.   Verkamp told JPD his attention was diverted for just a moment before the impact.

Miller and two passengers in his car were transported to Memorial Hospital complaining of back pain.

Verkamp was cited for speed too fast to avoid a collision.
