Around 2 p.m. on June 17, 2012, police suspect the woman was turning into an apartment complex located near Van Buren and 59th avenue. Her red Nissan was rear-ended by a male driver in silver Chrysler sedan. The male driver recalled he unintentionally veered into the turn lane and struck the woman’s vehicle. The initial accident caused the vehicle to spin into oncoming traffic where the vehicle was involved in a second collusion. Witness to the accident tried to assist the passengers in the Nissan while they waited for medical personnel to arrive.
The children in the vehicle, ages 5 and 8, were believed to be unrestrained. The children were taken to St. Joseph hospital. One of the boys had a fractured leg and the other is still in critical condition. The female driver in the Nissan had to be extracted from the wreckage and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police department does not believe the driver in the Chrysler was intoxicated or impaired. The driver of the second car that struck the Nissan was taken to the hospital but is not thought to have life-threatening injuries.0 Comment
