A Loogootee woman tells Jasper police she was southbound in the 600 block of Third Avenue at about 6:30 this morning when she stopped to make a left hand turn. She says two other vehicle behind hers stopped to allow her to make the turn. That’s when a fourth vehicle hit the trailing car causing the chain-reaction.
The fourth vehicle that caused the accident left the scene. Police say they do not have a description of the vehicle, but say it will have front-end damage.
Damage estimates to other three vehicles… about $7500.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call Jasper police at 482-2255 or call JPD’s anonymous tip line at 481-COPS (2677).
